Neck in… Neck out. We have watched many attempts of a peacock dance but how does a peacock dance actually look like? Mayura thottam, Ottapidaram, Thoothukudi District, welcomes you with the sea of these iridescent blues. When the peacock unleashes the innumerable golden butterflies on its feathers, its truly a feast for our eyes. The opportunity to watch numerous peacocks flaunting their feathers is a feather on our cap. Isn’t it?
One step in the farm is a giant leap into the past. As you silently gaze at the antique house you are teleported to the past. This flintstones-like house invites you with its warmth, cosy setting. A unique, cute windmill, behind the house bombards our pictures with traces of Europe.
It’s a blessing that our senses get used to the alarms of the royal colours of the nation that cannot be snoozed. Warning! Bird-watchers! Be ready to be dazzled! Apart from finding the National bird, you might have your eyes land on other gorgeously plumed birds which are a sight to behold. The farm serves as a picnic-spot to common birds like owl
s, eagles and pigeons that relaxes itself in the shades of green. The long stretch of mango, chikoo and coconut trees will introduce you to a different universe. A long walk beside the stretch of trees will fill you with fresh air and a clear mind. The sweet breeze plays melodies that can put even an insomniac person to sleep.
We can call the farm as a ‘pathway to the fertile past’ as nature is left untouched by pollution or the evil hands of man. There are huge wells that stand as a mirror to the days of old. Mother nature surprises us with hidden bumps that allows us to melt our hearts, watching the sunset to the fullest. At frequent intervals, we are so mesmerized, absorbing the beauty that we forget to record them on our phones, but they stay fresh in our memory.
The farmland is being prepared with embellishments to be made safer and open for tourists. To sink more deeper into this mesmerizing wonderful paradise in your city, click here.
PS: Our charming little guide, Anna helped us explore the places, providing us with surprising information which made us crave for more. She also made sure we had a bridle to our adventurous horses; else we lose ourselves in the beauty of the 55-acre land.
