Incredible views of the natural world may be found in Kerala, India, and they are best enjoyed from the Jatayu Earth’s Center. The nation’s tourism office and the sculptor and film director Rajiv Anchal collaborated to create the nature park, which debuted at the end of 2017. The largest bird sculpture in the world is located at the Jatayu Earth’s Center, which has since gained enormous notoriety.
The bird, also known as Jatayu, has astounding stature. It measures 150 feet in width, 200 feet long, and 70 feet high. At such a great size, the sculpture has exquisite detailing, such as layered and individually designed feathers. Visitors may stroll on top of Jatayu and climb up onto his talons and head thanks to the remarkable way in which his wings spread out onto the ground. They are also intended for Jatayu’s interior. This artistic creation is also a functioning roof for the Earth Center’s building thanks to the bird’s body. It is hardly surprising that Anchal and his crew needed ten years to create this amazing structure.
The enormous sculpture has an important background in addition to being a great accomplishment of design and architecture. The Hindu epic Ramayana features a symbolic character named Jatayu. According to tradition, this “great bird of divine origin” attempted to save Sita, the famous Lord Rama’s bride (an incarnation of Vishnu and Krishna). Jatayu intervened to save Sita from the demon king Ravana’s kidnapping.
The king defeated Ravana, severed Jatayu’s left wing, and took Sita with him. The Jatayu Earth’s Center made the decision to erect this enormous statue in recognition of the heroic figure’s commitment to women’s safety. The artwork also alludes to a “previous era when people, animals, and all living things were kind to one another and coexisted harmoniously on this planet.”
