We all know that Lord Shiva had three sons: Kartikeya, Ganesha and Ayyappa, but very few know that he fathered three daughters too. Their names are Ashok Sundari, Jyoti and Manasa (also called Vasuki). Although, they are not as famous as their brothers, Shiva’s three daughters are worshipped in different parts of India even today.
Many religious scriptures, stories, including the most authentic ‘Shiva Purana’ has mentioned about them. For reference, readers can look up Rudra Samhita: Section II – Sati Khanda of Shiva Purana.
