Peacock Garden

In any modern city you will see ugly places left over by modern flyovers or circles made to regulate traffic. They are inevitable by product of modernization. A consequence of a large number of people living together.It has become so that we do not notice the eyesores any more. For some time now the Government of Rajasthan and JDA (Jaipur Development Authority) have been going to great lengths to beautify these eyesores. They can not get rid of them but they can hide them a little. They can divert the attention of the public from something ugly to a thing of beauty, a work of art. They have had the walls of flyover painted with traditional paintings, on some mural have been put , on some mandanas have been painted. On the island made by the circles they have put up sculptures depicting rajasthani culture.

The Peacock Garden in Malvea Nagar was one of the first space left over by the flyover to be beautified by having a garden developed and mandanas painted and carved stone chatris with sculptures of life size peacocks made of fiber installed.The peacock sculptures have been made by Mr.Raj Kumar Pandit who is based in Jaipur. His some other works gracing the city of Jaipur are Ashok Stambh at the Vidhan Sabha and the statue of Vallabh Bhai Patel at the Secriteriat.
