Hinduism - Who Is Khara In Hindu Mythology?


Khara is one of the demon-king Ravana's siblings in the Ramayana, the earlier of the two major Indian epics.

Khara works with his brother Dushana to revenge the dignity of their sister Shurpanakha, who had her ears and nose cut off by Rama's brother Lakshmana.

Rama defeats the demon army in a violent fight, slaying Khara and Dushana.

Shurpanakha seeks revenge against their brother Ravana after seeing her two brothers' defeat.

Ravana believes he won't be able to kill Rama in combat, so he decides to revenge his sister by capturing Sita, which sets the tone for the rest of the epic.
