Indra- The God of War
Indra is the king of the gods and the king of heaven. He is also the god of thunder, rain, and war. Sometimes Indra gets confused in ruling over heaven and gets fooled by demons. So to stop that, Indra destroyed any being that was too strong. He rides on a horse that is dragged by ten thousand horses. He is fast as the wind. He is believed to have a sword, a hook, a noose or a lasso, a conch, a rainbow and a magic weapon Vaijra. Since Indra is the ruler of heaven, he takes over the gods who form heaven. The gods stand for elements. They are: 1. Agni- Fire| 2. Varuna- Water| 3. Surya- Sun. Indra is the a very popular god. He is in different religions, too. Indra rides and Airavata. Airavata is a white four- tusked elephant. Indra is reffered to in some stories. One story on Hanuman is a really interesting story.
