About Misrikh Teerth or Dadhichi Kund

When ousted from devlok by the asura Vritra who could only be killed by a pious object, not weapons Devraj Indra pleaded to Vishnu, who advised him to request Maharishi Dadhichi for his ribs; the sage reluctantly agreed. Indra is said to have then fashioned a Vajra and slain the demon. All of this transpired in Misrikh, 10 KM away, where a temple, ashram (hermitage) and kund (pond) mark the event.
