Dhundu is a very evil asura or demon. Dhundu harassed the pious sage Uttanka very much. King Kuvalyaswa was inspired by Lord Vishnu to destroy this demon. One thousand sons of the king helped him to kill Dhundu but all of them were killed by the fiery breath of Dhundu except three.
The demon Dhundu hid himself beneath a sea of sand, which Kuvalayaswa and his sons dug up. They dug it even though the flames prevented their progress and finally destroyed most of them. The king was afterwards known as Dhundumara. The legend is supposed to have originated in some physical phenomena like an earthquake or volcano.
