God’s own country, Kerala is about to set another attraction along with its backwaters, sunsets, and hills and along with other nature embracing beauty.Jatayu, as the name suggests is a mythological denomination of Ramayana. Jatayu was the king of Birds who helped Lady Sita when Ravana kidnapped her and was escaping by air route. He was killed in a fight with Ravana. Jatayu’s brother guided Hanuman towards the route to find Sita. This nature park has been named after him.

‘Kiskinda kand’ of Ramayan tells us about the incident when Ravana was flying away after kidnapping Lady Sita. When Jatayu saw him, he fought with him till his last breath. Victimized in the fight Jatayu fell down on a mountain, where rocks were carved by his beaks. This rock has been named as Jatayu rock, where footprints of Lord Ram are still available.
