Rambha in Hindu mythology is the Queen of the Apsaras, the magical and beautiful female beings in Devaloka.

She is unrivalled in her accomplishments in the arts of dancing, music and beauty.

Viswamitra sees Rambha and curses her.

When she tries to disturb the penance of Rishi Vishwamitra (who is doing it to become a Brahmarishi), she is cursed by him to become a rock for 10,000 years till a Brahmin delivers her from the curse.
