Romapāda is also known as Lomapāda. He was a king of Candravanśa or lunar dynasty. He was a good friend of Daśaratha, the king of Ayodhyā. He is said to have adopted Sāntā, the daughter of Daśaratha as his daughter and later married her to the sage Rṣyaśṛṅga.

Once there was a terrible famine in his kingdom. He then managed to bring the sage to his capital. As soon as the sage entered his kingdom there was heavy rain.[1][2]
