Indra is the King of the gods or Devas and Lord of Heaven or Svargaloka in Hindu mythology, and also he is the God of War, Storms, and Rainfall. Indra figures as one of the chief deities in the Rigveda, celebrated as the slayer of Vtra and central to the Soma sacrifice. He has many epithets, notably van the bull, and vtrahan, slayer of Vtra. Indra appears as the name of an arch-demon in the Zoroastrian religion, while Verethragna appears as a god of victory. In Puranic mythology, Indra is bestowed with a heroic and almost brash and amorous character at times, even as his reputation and role diminished in later Hinduism with the rise of the Trimurti. In Buddhist tradition, Indra is also called; in Thai as Phra Intra, in Malay as Indera, in Tamil as Intiran, in Chinese as D`ish`itian, and in Japanese as Taishakuten.
