Raavan – the 10-headed king of the demons

    

According to Hindu mythology, Lanka, the kingdom of Raavan was made of gold. Today it is known as Sri Lanka.

Raavana, in Hinduism, the 10-headed king of the demons (rakshasas). His abduction of Sita and eventual defeat by her husband Rama are the central incidents of the popular epic the Ramayana. Raavana ruled in the kingdom of Lanka, believed by some to be modern Sri Lanka, from which he had expelled his brother Kubera. The Ram Lila festival, an annual pageant popular particularly in northern India, is climaxed with the defeat of Ravana and the burning of huge effigies of the demons.
