The Pegasus proudly greets visitors to the Golden Horse casino, which is a four-star luxury hotel in Pietermaritzburg.
The Pegasus was known as the horse god in Greek mythology and was sired by Poseidon, the god of the sea.
Sixteen additional Tang horses line the path to the casino entrance, and these and the carved panels framing the front door, which are reproductions of Assyrian panels from 500BC, were specifically commissioned for the Golden Horse Casino. The casino complex provides 96 luxury rooms and a casino, and has views over Scottsville Race Course.
Three restaurants, ranging from barbeque buffet to Indian cuisine, are available along with a bar and a fast food court. Conferencing facilities are also on offer.
