The Philosophical Foodie – Mayuri – Santa Clara, CA
‘Mayuri’ means, ‘peacock’ in English.Our restaurant is proud to use the national bird of India as its symbol. The peacock is the most splendid of the pheasants. This beautiful bird is a native of India and Sri Lanka. The brilliant metallic blue and green plumage of the peacock, and the showy display that the male of the species makes, are a metaphor for the pride and beauty of India. Among the imagery in Indian art, a peacock always accompanies Saraswati, the goddess of music and learning.
