Purukutsa Purukutsa was the son of the famous king Māndhātṛ of the solar race. He was a forefather of Sri Rāma. He had married Narmadā, a princess of the Nāga tribe. His grandson, Anaraṇya, at the time of his death in a duel with Rāvaṇa, cursed him that he would be killed by Śrī Rāma, a descendant of the Ikṣvāku (or Solar) race. The Rgveda (1.63.7) mentions one Purukutsa who was saved by Indra. He was a sage.
