[Poetry In Stone|கல்லிலே கலைவண்ணம் கண்டோம்] Garudanin
  • VJ, awesome pics and post, thank you!! The ACK version of Garuda was
    my favorite a child too. Just couple of things if I may add - in the
    last/final part of the story, the only 'naga' that drinks a few drops
    of Indra's Amrit was Adisesha who hence remained immortal.(There is
    one other snake too, forget the name). Garuda's two sons were
    Sampaathi and Jataayu both of whom are featured in the Ramayana.
    (Sampathi tries to save brother Jatayu from the sun, gets burned and
    is unable to fly until Sri Rama liberates him from the curse).

    Garuda literally means vedic knowledge and his wings signify how the
    knowledge has reached us from heavens.His other names include
    Sarpaarti (enemy of snakes) and Suparna (with beautiful wings). Sri
    Garuda' wife is Garudi.

    The Garuda Visnu Kencana Park in Bali is a very famous cultural theme
    park dedicated to Garuda and has one of the world's biggest garuda
    sculptures. I dont' know if there are any on the internet.

Howdy, Stranger!
