This is the first time a temple in Fiji owns symbolic birds

 

Two peacocks have been adopted by the Sri Siva Subramaniya temple in Nadi for the first time in Nadi.

This after Mayuran (male peacock) and Taruni (female peacock) were donated by the director for Youngsters Decoration, Sangita Goundar and her family, to mark the company’s 10th anniversary.

Ms Goundar, while making the donation, said it was a perfect gift to show appreciation and offer thanks to the temple and the Almighty.

The head priest of Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple, Anand Gurukkal, said the peacocks served its own purpose and meaning to the temple.

This is the first time, a real peacock is owned by a temple in Fiji.

“We have received two beautiful peacocks for our temple, these peacocks depict the chariot for Lord Murugan flying from here and there and he will go with the male peacock,” he said.

“We wish well to our donors on their tenth anniversary and thank them for this special chariot of Lord Murugan, one male and female peacock.”

One of the donors, Ashni Goundar, said they had wanted to do this for some time, but had to wait for the right time, which was on Friday.
