In the middle of the fight he took time off to perform a fire sacrifice, which would make him unconquerable. Lakshmana, with the help of the vanaras, prevented Indrajit from finishing the sacrifice.
Lakshmana and Indrajit fought long and bitterly using the most potent weapons got from the gods. The end of Indrajit came when Lakshmana took out the Indrastra (the weapon of Indra) and aimed it at the enemy. The arrow cut off Indrajit's head and it tumbled down with crown, ornaments and all.
They fought bitterly for full seven days and nights. The deadliest weapons of earth and heaven were used. The creatures of heaven gathered in their hosts to watch the great combat.
