Chadayamangalam" or "Jadayumangalam" is historically an important place. It is 43 km away from capital city Trivandrum. It's a beautiful town lying between Kilimanoor and Kottarakara, 14 km away from Kilimanoor and 21 km from Kottarakara. It is situated on the southeast side of Kottarakkara Taluk and this place is enriched with huge Black Rocks which attracts and fascinates everyone who looks upon them.
The place has connections to the stories in the Hindu Indian epic called the Ramayana. History says that, when Ravan the king of asuras, kidnapped "Sita" wife of Lord Sri Rama and tried to take her to his kingdom Lanka on his Puspaka Vimana, Jadayu; the huge bird opposes and result in a battle between them. In the war Ravan slit Jadayu's one wing and escaped to Lanka with Sita. With a fatal wound, Jadayu falls on top of a big rock. Later Rama & Lakshmana found wounded Jadayu and he passed the message and died on the laps of Rama. Hence, the rock got the name Jadayupara.
Jatayu is the son of Aruna and nephew of Garuda who has the form of a vulture. Jadayu Para is well known as a tourist destination and a place of pilgrimage. Right on top the rock the building of a huge functional sculpture of the Great Bird Jatayu is under way. An 18 ft high Statue of Lord Shri Rama Chandra is being constructed on the top of Jadayupara.
The Jatayupara nature park, the state's first BOT-model ecotourism project at Chadayamangalam in Kollam that was rechristened as Jatayu Earth's Center, will be opened to visitors in April this year with minimum features, including a ropeway with cable cars. The other attractions of the park that includes a virtual reality museum, multidimensional theatre and adventure training centre are expected to be ready soon.
