Sambara is an ancient aboriginal king mentioned in the Rig Veda
as a black-skinned enemy. Sambara lived for forty years on the mountains and possessed a hundred impregnable cities. These cities ruled by Sambara were coveted by Divodasa. Divodasa is one of Lord Indra
's white-complexioned friends. Divodasa was disgusted, and obliged to hide himself in the water; but Indra to give him pleasure, struck off the head of Sambara. Sambara lived in Udavraja, a country into which the waters flow.
Sambara believed himself to be invulnerable. But Indra discovered him when issuing from the mountain, and scattered the hundreds and thousands of his hosts. For the mighty Divodasa, Indra dances with delight in battle and destroyed the Sambara cities. Indra destroyed ninety-nine cities and the hundredth he gave to Divodasa.
