Maya - The Architect of the Asuras


Maya is the architect of the Asuras. He is mentioned in many places as having constructed cities of great beauty and splendor for the Asuras. He was saved from being burnt by Agni by Arjuna and Krishna. In gratitude, he built the city of Indraprastha, the capital of the Pandavas, to rival Amravati, the city of Indra. Namuchi is his brother.
