Lopamudra - Wife of Agastya


Lopamudra was princess, the daughter of the King of Vidharbha. She was married to the great sage Agastya. Together with her husband she is credited with spreading the fame of the LalithaSahasranama (thousand names of Devi).

It was while seeking riches at her request that Agastya killed the two Asura brothers Vatapi and Ilvala, who were notorious for their black magic and dark deeds.
