The state elephant of Dhanañjaya, king of the Kurus.

It was credited with the power of bringing rain; the brahmins of Dantapura in Kalinga, therefore, begged for it during a severe drought.

But the elephant was of no avail, the rain did not come, and so it was returned to Dhanañjaya. J.ii.368f.; DhA.iv.88f.
