Jai Shri Krishna,
Indeed the elephant (Gajendra) in his previous life was a Pandya King known by the name of Indradyumna, the foremost of the people of the Dravida country (now known by the name of Tamilnad) and devoted to the worship of Lord Vishnu.
Sage Agastya of surpassing glory is the one who cursed the king to become elephant.
Now the new question is WHY???
