The drum of the Asuras made from the claw of the crab of Kulīradaha. (For the story see ānaka.)

When the Asuras were defeated in battle they left the drum in their flight and Sakka took possession of it.

Its sound resembled a peal of thunder and for that reason, probably, came to be called Ālambara-megha. J.ii.344.
