Naimisharanaya Yatra - Day 2

Dadhichi Kund - Dadhichi was a Vedic king, Son of Atharvan, who turned into a great Rishi. Dadhichi gave his bones to destroy Vritra. Lord Vishnu told them that Vritra could not be destroyed by ordinary means, revealing that only a weapon made from the bones of a great rishi could kill him. When the deities revealed their doubts about the likelihood of any ascetic donating his body, Lord Vishnu directed them to approach the sage (Rishi) Dadhichi. When approached by the gods, Dadhichi gladly gave up his bones for the cause of the good, stating that it would be better for his bones to help them attain victory than to rot in the ground. The Demigods collected the bones and Indra crafted the Vajra from them.
