While you’re on the winding road, bordered by tall trees and scattered rocks, which leads to this peacock country, you will be able to hear the piercing squawks of these beautiful creatures.

It is estimated that the number of peacocks in the sanctuary is about 200. The birds can be seen mostly during dawn and dusk. The dance of these free, wild birds during overcast days is breathtaking.
