Vasujyetha (b. ???, r. 141–131 BCE, d. 131 BCE) was the third King of the Sunga Dynasty of Northern India. His reign was not well documented, thus little is known about him. He is credited [1] with successfully completing his grandfather's Ashvamedha and for defeating forces of the Indo-Greek Kingdom along the banks of the Sindhu River.[1] His achievements are mentioned briefly in the "Malavikagnimitra", which was composed during the later Gupta era by Kalidasa.
