THE ANCESTRY OF RAVANA
In other words both groups followed the Vedic religion, as the Angirasas and Bhrigus are the two main families of Vedic seers. The Devic culture, as described in the Manu Samhita, was centered on the Sarasvati region in north India. The Daitya (Asura) culture was located nearby in the religion of the Bhrigus which was the southwest of India by the Arabian sea, as evidenced by the Bhrigu city Bhrigu-kaccha or Baruch, near modern Baroda.

Varuna, the God of the sea, was the father of the Bhrigus, as the original Bhrigu was called Bhrigu Varuni. Gujarat was also the region of  Sharyata Manava, one of the early sons of Manu, who founded the city of Kushasthali later (Dwarka), who was similarly allied with the Bhrigus as his guru was Chyavana Bhargava, but whose kingdom was destroyed by the Asuras, who were perhaps these same Daityas.  After a period of conflict the Deva and Asura groups forged an alliance. Yayati, the king in the line of Manu, had two wives.
