Hmmm… Hey, I know about King of the Ujjain, Vikramaditya.

img

Wow Great!

img

According to Bhavishyapurana  he was the first great Hindu King among ten great kings. Gods showered flowers at his birth. At the age of five he went to do austere penance (Tapasya) for 12 years. Bethala or Vethala who was sent by Goddess Parvati became his assistant as he sacrificed a treacherous mantrika to Kalika Devi. Vikram and vethala’s stories are very famous.

King Vikramaditya received a throne from Lord Indra as he settled a dispute between Rambha and Urvashi. In his judgement Urashi's dance was superior to Rambha's, because Rambha lost confidence and her garland became pale as she worried about victory while dancing. He received a boon that he and his descendents would rule the kingdom for 1000 years. His grandson was King Shalivahana of Paithan (Pratisthan). Vikramaditya performed a yagna attended by all the gods except the Lord Moon. Hence, he went to the Moon world and asked for the reason. The Lord Moon replied that he did not come as it was kaliyuga.

Good One! Bhavisyapurana is one of the eighteen major Hindu Puranas. King Vikramaditya was born in a hindu family, in 101 B.C, Ujjain. His father was Gandharvasena. Vikramaditya was brave, courageous and magnanimous from his birth. The legendary Vikramaditya is a popular figure in Sanskrit and regional languages in India. People loved him because he always rendered justice. King Bhartrahari was the elder brother of King Vikramaditya.
