Caption: The great bull, an Hindoo idol at Tanjore. Aaquatint, coloured 1798 British school This Statue of the sacred Bull, a celebrated idol at Tanjore, is formed of a single block of stone, sixteen feet two inches in length, by twelve feet six inches in height, and of a kind not to be met with but at a considerable distance from Tanjore; from which circumstance the natives are very much inclined to attribute something miraculous to the bringing of it thither; particularly as no records are yet discovered respecting the time of erecting it. The pillars surrounding the idol are in the ancient Hindoo style, and very well wrought. Tanjore is in lat. 10 46 north, long. 79 12 eaSt Distant from Madras two hundred and five miles.
