According to Puranas, Nandi was born out of the right side of Vishnu resembling Shiva exactly and given as a son to the sage Salankayana. Some puranas mention him as the son of the sage Silada who got him by the grace of Shiva. Nandi also cursed Ravana (the demon King of Lanka) that his kingdom would be burnt by a monkey (Vanara) and later Hanuman, the great monkey devotee of Lord Ramchandra, burnt Lanka when he went in search of Sita, abducted by Ravana in Ashok Vatika.
