|Lord Brahma had made an arrangement for the serpents of Nagalaya, that they should offer one sacrificial snake to Garuda on each half-moon day. This way, there was no unnecessary killing, and Garuda was satisfied. Kaliya, however, decided that there should be no offering for Garuda, and he himself ate the offerings. When Garuda found out what was happening, he rushed to the island to kill Kaliya. Kaliya, with his many hoods and sharp teeth, tried to bite Garuda, but Garuda struck him with the force of his effulgent golden wings. Kaliya fled to a lake underneath the Yamuna.
