Jatayu was a demi-god in Ramayana (the Hindu epic) who had the form of a vulture. According to the Ramayana, when Ravana abducted Sita, on his way to Lanka Jatayu had tried to rescue Sita from him.
Jatayu fought valiantly with Ravana, but as Jatayu was very old, Ravana soon defeated him. Rama and Lakshmana while on the search for Sita, chanced upon the stricken and dying Jatayu, who informed them of the battle with Ravana and told them that Ravana had headed south. Legend says that Jatayu fell on the rocks in Chadayamangalam, after his wings were clipped by Ravana
