On the east side of the sanctuary are two freestanding libraries, each with elaborate pediments. In this one (the east pediment of the north library), Indra rides a chariot pulled by an elephant and sends rain to put out a fire that was deliberately set in the Khandava forest by the god Agni, who was trying to kill the serpent whose heads rise in the center. Agni is helped from below by Krishna and his brother Balarama, who shoot arrows into the rain to deflect it.
