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.
