Hindu Mythology

The colorful deities and demons of India...


Hindu River Goddess

Goddess of the river Yamuna

The daughter of Surya, she looks after this fairly sacred river which meets the even more sacred river Ganges.

She rides a tortoise, holds a blue lotus and carries a fly swatter. Spiritual and practical, we like that.
