The National bird of India is the Peacock. We saw quite a few of them in Jaipur and Madurai. This beauty was in the wilds of Jaipur. We saw him and others on the road to the otherworldly monkey temple. While at the palace in Jaipur, we saw the designs of the peacock painted on a few walls and archways above doors. It is a symbol of grace, joy, beauty and love.
