A Hindu temple in KL with a peacock pen

Want to see peacocks (aka peafowl) in KL without going to the zoo? Go to Nagara Thandayuthapani Temple at Jalan Ipoh (Opposite Madras Hotel) which has a peacock pen.  Eight birds live there. Peacocks with colourful trains (a term for peacock's tail) are males and peahens (female) are less colourful.  Peafowl are native to India and Sri Lanka but they are also found in the Congo Basin and  Indo-China.
