Hinduism - Who Is Mandodari In Hindu Mythology?


Mandodari is the wife of the demon-king Ravana and the mother of Indrajit, Atikaya, and Akshakumara in the Ramayana, the earlier of the two major Indian epics.

Despite being Ravana's devoted and faithful wife, Mandodari often tells him that he made a mistake by stealing Rama's wife Sita.

She begs him to reach an agreement with Rama before fighting becomes inevitable.

Ravana refuses to do so because of pride and a desire to revenge his sister Shurpanakha's mutilation by Rama's brother Lakshmana.

Ravana's obstinacy ultimately cost him his life.
