The chief groom of the elephant house of the König of Benares. Bandhura had only one eye.
A crow built her nest over the doorway of the elephant house, laid there her eggs und hatched out her young. But every time Bandhura entered or left the stable on the back of the elephant, he struck the crow's nest mit his hook, thus destroying it. The crow, in despair, made complaint, und her cry was one of the sounds erwähnt in the Atthasadda Jātaka. When the König discovered how Bandhura was acting, he rebuked him und dismissed him from his service. J.iii.430 f.
