SONEPUR

The sage Dewala Muni, who had also come to have his bath, got angry and cursed the Gandharva chief and changed him into a crocodile as a punishment. Thenceforward he lived in the lake in the form of a huge crocodile until he was restored to his Gandharva life by the sacred touch of Vishnu (Hari), who, with his discus (Chakra), cut the throat of the crocodile while delivering the elephant from his jaws. On the other hand, the elephant was, in its former existence, a king of the Pandyas, Indradyumna by name, who was a very pious man of a contemplative mood, he did not pay his respects to the sage Agastya. The sage cursed him ad put him in the form of an elephant. He, too, after long suffering, was saved by Hari by his touch, and was allowed to accompany him to Vaikuntha (heaven).
