 Tamas and Raivat  three sons.

Maharaj Manu ruled this Earth for a long time. People were very happy in his kingdom. They had composed the 'Manu Smriti' which is not found in the original form today. It has been a disaster for its meaning.

When Raja Manu wanted the salvation of the people, he handed over the entire palace to his eldest son Uttanapada and went alone with his wife Shatrupa to Namisharnya shrine.

Manu, on the bank of the Sunanda river, practiced yagna for 100 years. Both husband and wife have practiced yagna for a long time on the banks of Gaumati in the holy shrine named Naimishananya. At that place the settlements of both have remained.
