The eastern section of the north gallery shows Vishnu incarnated as Krishna riding a garuda . He confronts a burning walled city, the residence of Bana, the demon king. The garuda puts out the fire and Bana is captured. In the final scene Krishna kneels before Shiva and asks that Bana’s life be spared.
