Samba, In Hindu mythology, was a son of Vishnu in the avatar of Krishna, born of Dshamty, the beautiful daughter of the king of the bears. Samba, guided by the counsel of his father, and in order to avert the infliction of a threatening curse to which he had imprudently exposed himself, built a city, to which he gave his own name, and introduced in it the worship of the sun, to which he gathered the priests by conveying them on the saddle horse Garudha, which was sacred to Vishnu.
