This article is little more than a placeholder for Asura. You can help Conan Wiki by expanding it.

Asura was a god worshiped during the Hyborian Age. It was the ancient religion of Vendhya, Kaa-u in the days of Kull.


"Asura" is the Indian form of the Persian "Ahura"- as in Ahura Mazda, god of Zoroastrianism. Zoroastrianism is now primarily found in India with the name Parsism. Ahura Mazda is the father of the god Mithra. In India this is spelled "Mitra".


Asura-worship appears first in The People of the Black Circle, and then in The Hour of the Dragon.
