Rohini - The Favorite Wife of Chandra


Rohini is a daughter of Daksha. She was married to Chandra, the moon, alongwith twenty-six of her sisters. The twenty-seven sisters are the twenty-seven constellations in Indian Astrology. Her father had secured the promise that all of them would be treated equally from Chandra. However, Chandra favored Rohini above all and broke his promise to his father-in-law. For this broken promise, he was cursed by Daksha.
