Senagen in Hindu mythology, is a king belonging to the race of Children of the Sun, who is connected with the fables relating to the tyrant of Ceylon (Lanka), the noted Ravana, and consequently with the story of Rama. Ravana having demanded a vessel filled with blood from certain holy devotees, it was afterwards buried by the gigantic demon in the territories of Senagen because it brought him trouble. Senagen found it, and discovered in it a beautiful child which he recognized as an embodiment of the goddess Lakshmi. She was subsequently married to Rama, an incarnation of her consort Vishnu.
