Marisha was the daughter of sage Kandu and the Apsara Pramlocha, as stated in Hindu mythology. Pramlocha was an Apsara, a female spirit of the clouds and waters.
There is a mythological story relating the birth of Marisha. In the previous birth she was the widow of a prince, and left childless at her husband's death. She prayed to Lord Vishnu
that in succeeding births she might have honourable husbands and a son equal to a patriarch amongst men. The prayer was granted and she was married to the Prachetasas after she was born as Marisha.
