Abstract
Harishchandra is a legendary Indian king of the Ikshvakudynasty, who appears in several legends in texts such as Aitareya Brahmana, Mahabharata, the Markandeya Purana, and the Devi-Bhagavata Purana. The most famous of these stories is the one mentioned in Markandeya Purana. According to this legend, Harishchandra gave away his kingdom, sold his family and agreed to be a slave - all to fulfill a promise he had made to the sage Vishwamitra.
