The Ramayana epic, written in Sanskrit, tells a story about a giant eagle of the Ramayana who fell while fighting against Ravana, to save a Hindu goddess Sita. The residents of Chadayamangalam village in Kollam district, Kerala, had known the story for many years, now it has been brought back to life in the best way possible.

When we say that is the biggest sculpture of a bird in the world, we do really mean it since the sculpture itself stretches 200ft from tail to head and is also build on top of the 1,000ft-high Jatayupara towers.

The author of the sculpture, filmmaker Rajiv Anchal, says he had the idea for longer than 10 years.“I had presented a model for this sculpture to the Department of Tourism during my Fine Arts College days in the 1980s. Although they were impressed, it didn’t take shape back then.”

The author of the sculpture also says how important it is to not turn the monument from a cultural one into a religious one. According to him “Jatayu died protecting a woman’s honor and that is what the sculpture stands for. People of all faiths have invested in the project and people of all faiths will be coming to see it. My work is for all of them. For those looking for religion, there is the old temple just outside the compound.”
