  • A Kṣatriya King of Magadha. The following information about this King is available from the Mahābhārata. 1) Daṇḍadhara was born as the rebirth of a giant known as Krodhavardhana. [M.B. Ādi Parva, Chapter 67, Stanza 46]. 2) Bhīmasena, during his conquest of the countries, overcame King Daṇḍadhara and his brother Daṇḍa. [M.B. Sabhā Parva, Chapter 30, Stanza 17]. 3) In the battle between the Pāṇḍavas and the Kauravas, Daṇḍadhara fought from the back of an elephant against the Pāṇḍavas. When Daṇḍadhara began to exterminate the army of the Pāṇḍavas, Śrī Kṛṣṇa persuaded Arjuna to fight against Daṇḍadhara, who was killed in the fight. [M.B. Karṇa Parva, Chapter 8, Stanzas 1 to 13].
