Hinduism - What Is Kishkindha In Hindu Mythology?

 


Kishkindha is a woodland kingdom governed by monkeys in the Ramayana, the first of the two major Indian epics.

When Rama (the epic's protagonist) initially arrives in Kishkindha with his brother Lakshmana in quest of Rama's stolen bride Sita, the monkey-king Bali reigns supreme.

Rama kills Bali, and his brother Sugriva, Rama's friend, succeeds him.

Sugriva sends his people on a broad hunt for Sita.

Hanuman, one of them, ultimately finds her being kept captive on Lanka.
