Wanagaren (or Vanagaren or Banafsheren), in Hindû mythology, is the son of the giant-king Bali, and reigned in Maralipuram. Because Krishna's son Anuredh enticed his daughter and was captured. Krishna carried on a war with him, and captured his kingdom, notwithstanding Siva's defense, and cut off the giant's thousand hands, all but two, with which he is obliged to pay homage. It would seem as if this myth were designed to express the removal of the Siva-worship by Vishnu.
