In Hindu mythology, Vrishparva was a Danava king with great powers and magic. He fought and won many wars against Indra with the help of his main priest Shukracharya. He made many attempts to kill Kacha, the son of Brihaspati. His daughter Sharmishtha is a friend of Devayani, the daughter of Sage Shukracharya, the guru of all Asuras, who married to King Yayati and thus Sharmishtha was given as dowry.
