Everyone is probably familiar with the phrase “an eagle has landed”. Those were the words spoken by Neil Armstrong on July 1969 with reference to their landed aircraft on the moon. But it was a different story here when an eagle was found resting on a Garuda statue in Sri Krishna Temple of Kerala. At the time of report, it was on 27th March 2017. It has been sitting on the statue since 23rd March 2017. This temple is located in Thakkolam panchayath, Iduki district in the State of Kerala, India.

The eagle seems oblivious to the surrounding of the temple though devotees were flocking in and out of the temple. Some curious onlookers could be seen watching the bird as it stood there appearing totally tame. The bird didn’t try to fly off when people take close up video of the bird. As it can be seen, some devotee must have applied “Bindi” (red dot) on the forehead of the bird. Obviously, the bird did not get startled by such gestures.
