Garuda
Garuda
Description

Garuda is a mythical bird and has been held in great veneration in India from time immemorial. Many indologists hold that this deity is of Dravidian origin.

A stone flag-post, often covered with a metal plate, with an image of Garuda on top, is invariably erected in front of the image of the deity in all Vaishnavaite temples. Besides this, another huge idol of Garuda is often installed in most Vaishnavaite temples, as he is considered to be one of the greatest devotees of Lord Vishnu. During the Gupta age, which is referred to as the golden era of Indian history, the Imperial standard had a Garuda image on it.

Garuda is represented as a large white-necked eagle, but his images in the temples show him with a human trunk. Serpents are the natural food of the eagle. The reason for this enmity is traced in the Adi Parva of the Mahabharata to the jealousy between Kadru and Vinata, the mother of the serpents and Garuda respectively.

Only Vishnu could have these two born enemies - Garuda, the mighty eagle and Shesha, the great serpent - wait upon him. He uses Shesha as his couch and Garuda as his mount.

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
