Indian Mythology (by ApamNapat)

Himavan - King of Mountains


हिमवान्

Himavan was the King of mountains. His wife was Meena. His daughter Uma, also known as Parvati, was a re-incarnation of Sati, the wife of Shiva. The young girl was aware of her destiny and from an early age, she began to pray, so that she may obtain Shiva for her husband in this birth.

Shiva was finally enticed out of his seclusion with the help of Kama. However, Kama was burnt to ashes in this attempt. You can read that story here.
