Hinduism - Who Was Ikshvaku Of The Ancient Suryavanshi Kshatriya (Or Solar Warrior) Lineage?

 


Ikshvaku was a monarch who founded the Solar Line in the Ramayana, the earlier of the two major Indian epics.

The Solar Line, along with the Lunar Line, was one of the two main Indian legendary lineages in ancient India; the god-king Rama and his brothers were the most prominent members of the Solar Line.

Ikshvaku is the grandson of the sun, Vivasvan (Surya), and hence he and his progeny are sun descendants.
