Peacock Gate

The beautiful peacock gate is the northeast gate, also leading to the courtyard in front of the Chandra Mahal and represents autumn and also Lord Vishnu.

This is beautiful, Ayush. I think the peacock is one of the best posers in the animal kingdom.
Ayush Basu: I have to agree with you on that, Astrid. Although they can also be rather harsh.

peacocks are so pretty, i think i've only seen one in my whole life!
Ayush Basu: It is indeed amazing to see them with their feathers all spread out, Elaine.

Quite a decoration. What draws my attention is the mounted peacocks that have green forked tongues.
Ayush Basu: I am afraid I have no idea if there is a significance to it, Louis. But the spouting stuff does nicely fill up the otherwise empty space.

riding on the peacocks

how whimsical
Ayush Basu: I believe that is usually the depiction for Saraswati, the Goddess of Wisdom and Literature, Sherri.
Absolutely stunning.
Ayush Basu: All those details are really to observe, Tom - they easily hold one's attention.
