Story – Kubera is best known as not the erstwhile King of Lanka, but as the God of Wealth

Vishrava left Ilavida after meeting, and falling in love with, the Asura Princess, Kaikesi, the daughter of King Sumali and Queen Ketumati. Through Kaikesi, he fathered another four children, Ravana, Vibhishana, Kumbakarna and Soorpanaka. When Ravana invaded Lanka and usurped his older brother Kubera’s throne, a disgusted Vishrava left his demonic family and returned to Ilavida, never to see Kaikesi or her offspring ever again. Kubera fled to Devaloka (Heaven) where he was charged by Indra, the King of the Devas, to manage his treasury. Kubera is best known to Hindus, therefore, as not the erstwhile King of Lanka, but as the God of Wealth.
