Dowson's Classical Dictionary
of Hindu Mythology] A prince of the Solar race, who, according to the
Vishnu Purana, had 21,000 sons, but the Harivansa numbers them only as 100.
Attended by his sons he attacked the great Asura, Dhundhu, who lived in a sea
of sand, and harassed the devotions of the pious sage Uttanka. They unearthed
the demon and slew him, from which exploit Kuvalaswa got the title of Dhundhumara,
slayer of Dhundhu; but all his sons except three perished by the fiery breath
of the monster.
