Everyone knows the two famous brothers of Ravana i.e. Kumbhakarna and Vibhishana, but only a few people aware about his big brother. Actually, it is not telecasted in Ramayana TV serials but Valmiki’s Ramayana has clearly mentioned about the eldest brother of Ravana.
Kubera was his half-brother. Vishrava (Kubera’s father) also got married to Ravana’s mother, the princess Kaikesi. The father of Ravana and Kubers are different but mother was same. Ravana beat Kubera and took his Pushpaka Vimana (the only flying object of that time).
What Was The Elder Brother of Ravana?
Sahastra Ravana was the elder brother of Ravana. His citing can be seen in Valmiki Ramayana. The great warrior even beat Lord Rama but Sita saved him from Sahastra Ravana and killed him.
