Jaladhi - The Vehicle Of Varuna - God Of Seas

Jaladhi, a crocodile, is the vehicle of Varuna, the Lord of the Seas in Hindu tradition. Information about Jaladhi is found in the Vamana Purana. It must be noted here that Makara, a crocodile is also the vehicle of Goddess Ganga (River Ganga).

Jaladhi is a black crocodile and Varuna rides on top of it. It is blessed with powers of movement through harsh waters.

Legend has it that Jaladhi appeared from the ear wax of Rudra Shiva.
