The name of the town, ‘Navalgund’ means the “hill of peacocks.” This place was famous for our national bird and was later incorporated as a part of the pattern in the jamkhana, which are famous for their colorful designs of peacocks. Jamkhana in local language means floor mats which are widely used as floor coverings for decorations.
