Worlds-largest-bird-sculptureKerala tourism will be inaugurating the world’s largest bird sculpture, Jatayu Earth’s Centre, in Thiruvananthapuram on July 4, as said by the Tourism Minister of the state Kadakampally Surendran.

 

The replica of the bird ‘Jatayu’, a character in the Ramayana is 200 feet long, 150 feet wide, 65 feet tall and is positioned right at the top of a rock situated 1,000 feet above sea level. The sculpture is spread over 65 acres in Thiruvananthapuram, and Rs. 100 crore was spent to built it.

 

“This has been the work of film-maker Rajiv Anchal and this project was declared under built-operate-transfer basis during the previous Left government in 2006,” said Surendran.

 

He added, “All these years he was working for this and on July 4, this would be thrown open to the public. Even now it’s ready, but since rains are expected anytime, we have decided to inaugurate in July.”

 

Rajiv Anchal said, “One can reach the top of the rock from the car parkvia a cable car that has come from Switzerland and is already installed. The museum and a 6D theatre inside the sculpture will open in November, as the 10-minute film which tells the tale of Jatayu is being made in Hollywood and would be screened here for the visitors.”

 

The state government, apart from offering the land for a 30-year lease, spent Rs. 10.25 crore for infrastructure development.

 

“Two per cent of the revenue will be given to the state government and it will be reviewed once in three years. The project will be handed over to the government after 30 years. At a time the complex can hold 5,000 people,” added Anchal.
