HARISCHANDRA

There were many great kings in ancient India. Some of them were born in the Soorya Vamsa and others in Chandra Vamsa. Harischandra belonged to the former.

He ruled over Ayodhya long before Dasaratha.

King Harischandra was learned, noble, generous, honest and truthful.

Once tile gods wanted to try his truthful ness. hey sent Rishi Viswamitra to him. Viswamitra went to him and said, 110 King! I want your kingdom-all of it."

The king was so generous that he at once gave away all his kingdom to him.

But, said Viswamitra, "you must give a thousand gold coins over and above, as dakshina !"
