Suryavanshis and the Chandravanshis- Pandavas against Lord Rama's Clan

The Suryavanshis and the Chandravanshis

The Ikshwaku Dynasty Vs Kuru Dynasty

Lord Rama belonged to Ikshwaku Dynasty ( Suryavanshis) whereas the Pandavas belonged to Kuru Dynasty ( Chandravanshis).

Takshak- the great Naga warrior king, who lead the Naga clan after Vasuki.

According to Shrimad-Bhagavatam, Takshak- the great Naga King belonged to the Ikshwaku Dynasty. He was a descendent of Shri Rama. The name of Takshaka's son was Brihadbala, who was killed in battle by Abhimanyu, the son of Arjuna.

Cursed by Lord Shiva, the Nagas, led by Vasuki move down to Khandava forest.

Arjuna and Sri Krishna burns down the Khandava forest where the Nagas are living. 
A lot of nagas are killed in the fire. 

Takshak’s wife dies.

The Indian Classics are fiction built on the skeleton of History and Geography, particularly the latter. Thus they become fertile soil for anyone to plant a seed of another fiction and let it flourish. The more the merrier. The authors can save the credibility struggle, since a modicum of universal acceptance of the outline of the classics, with the Geographical elements lending further credibility. Welcome!
