Description of the photo

On their way to Panchavati the princes saw a huge bird, which they mistook for a rakshasa in disguise. But Io! the bird spoke in a soft voice full of affection and regard.

The bird was none other than Jatayu, a nephew of Garuda, the vahana (mount) of Lord Vishnu. Jatayu said that he was a friend of Dasaratha. He offered to do his best to serve the Princes and guard Sita whenever she was left alone.

Rama accepted the offer and embraced. Jatayu and set off again.

At Panchavati, Lakshmana built a lovely cottage with reeds and grass found in the forest.
