TIRUNALLAR

In the days of yore when the King of Kalinga desired to perform an Ashwamedha Yaga, he was in search of a learned Brahmin conversant with the rites and rituals as prescribed in the scriptures for the successful performance of such a
sacrifice.

The news spread far and nears. One day, a Brahmin came and intimated his arrival to the King through a messenger. But the King did not readily take any serious notice about the august visitor. The Vedic Brahmin took it to be an insult and thought that the King did not really mean to perform the sacrifice.

The Brahmin was annoyed and cursed the King and his family to turn into elephants. Instantaneously the curse became operative and the King with his family turned into elephants and roamed about in the countryside and forests.
