Hinduism And Hindu Theology - Who Is Anshuman?



The grandson of King Sagar in Hindu mythology. 


  • Anshuman was the last surviving member of the royal family after the murder of his sixty thousand uncles, who were slain by the sage Kapila for their contempt. 
  • Anshuman and his son Dilip worked tirelessly to bring the Ganges (the physical incarnation of the goddess Ganga) from heaven to earth, so that the spirits of their family might find peace via her touch. 
  • Despite their failures, Dilip's son Bhagirath was eventually able to bring the Ganges to earth.
