Bali

Hindu - A demon-god, king of Sutala, part of the underworld. One of the Daityas. Son of Hiranyakashipu, Prahlada or Virochana. Husband of Vindhyavali. Father of Bana and Putana. He acquired so much power he might have ousted the god Indra. Vishnu, as his fifth avatar, the dwarf Vamana, asked the king for three paces of land. He then grew so enormous that he covered the world in two paces, leaving Bali only the underworld, Patala. Also commonly called Bali, Balin, Balin, Bali, Valin, Baly, Baly or Bali.
