request, he consented to stay there. He at once ordered Viswakarma to construct a
beautiful abode for himself, for the devas and for others.

build roads and erect a city around them. Indra, the king of the angels, desired to get
his daughter Devayanai married to Subrahmanya, as a mark of his gratitude for relieving
him and the devas from the depredations of the demon Surapadma.
