One of two Giants of Indian mythology that were adversaries to the god Vishnu. Together with Madhu, Kaitabha intended to kill the god Vishnu before he was born. While in the womb of Brahma, the sleeping Vishnu rested unaware of the Giants plans. The two Giants hid in the ears of Vishnu and waited until the god rose to the navel of Brahma. However at this moment Vishnu awakened and through his powers he discovered the intentions of the two Giants. With the plan uncovered, Vishnu, killed them and used their marrow to form a new world.
