Here are some resources that I found useful while searching for stories and articles on Indian Mythology.

  • Encyclopedia Mythica
    Contains articles and stories from many Mythologies. The Indian Mythology section is somewhat sparse and consists chiefly of descriptions of the Vedic Gods. It is an interesting place to find short descriptions of mythological characters.
  • Indian Mythology
    Perhaps the best site for stories from Indian mythology. It has stories from the Mahabharata, Ramayana, the Panchatantra, Jataka tales and many other topics. Only drawback is the annoying ads that pop up because this site is hosted on tripod.
  • Indian Divinity and Indian Mythology
    A well designed site, but the content is limited. Has a number of images of Indian Mythological characters.
  • Free Dictionary
    Although not specific to Indian Mythology, this site has brief descriptions of many of the Indian Mythological characters.
  • Sacred Texts
    It contains translations of the Vedas, Ramayana, Mahabharatha and some of the principal upanishads. It has an excellent primer on the Vedas by A.A. Macdonell. In addition to Hindu religious texts, a huge number of texts from other religions is also available. An excellent resource.
  • Hindu Books
    An excellent resource for books on Hinduism. The Mahabharatha by Rajaji is one of my favorite books. The battle episodes are rendered in a wealth of detail and in the most elegant language. The main drawback is an annoying site layout and the popups that plague this site.
  • The Vedic Experience
    An excellent introduction to the material in the Vedas. Selected verses are explained, and various themes are explored.
  • Valmiki Ramayana
    Complete Valmiki Ramyana, with verses in devanagari and romanized sanskrit, along with prose translation.
  • Srimad Bhagavatam
    Complete translation of the Srimad Bhagavata Purana.
  • Sanskrit Documents
    A large collection of sanskrit documents, in Devanagiri display and in a transliteration format. Contains both the Vedas and the Upanishads.
