Hinduism - Who Is Indrani In The Hindu Pantheon?


 (Feminine form of Indra) The wife of Indra, the deity who rules over the heavens.

Indrani is a minor character, maybe representing Indra's lessened importance in later Hindu mythology.

Her sole significant part is as the object of love in Nahusha's narrative, in which he succeeds Indra as the king of heaven due to his righteous actions.

Nahusha makes moves at Indrani, assuming he is entitled to both her and Indra's throne.

The sage Agastya curses Nahusha to be reincarnated as a huge snake for his arrogance.
