The slaying of Narakasur
The Vishnupurana tells the story of the slaying of Narakasur. In the Dwapar era, Bhumi Devi gave birth to a cruel son. Being an asura, he got the name Narakasur. He became the king of Pragjyotishpur. He greatly disturbed the gods and humans. Sixteen thousand nymphs were captured by Narakasur. After hearing the prayers of Indra, Lord Krishna invaded the city of the tyrant Narakasur. In battle he killed monsters like Moore, Hayagriva and Panchjan while Narakasur invaded in the form of an elephant. Lord Krishna killed Narakasur on the fourteenth day of this month's Vad Paksha. The nymphs and others were then released from captivity. That is why this festival is celebrated, hence the name of this festival is Narak Chaudhash.
