Shaunak Jee asked - "Hey Muni, In the Bhavishya Mahaa Kalp of later half of Brahmaa's age (2nd Paraardh or Uttaraardh), on the 3rd day of the 28th Sat Yug of first year of Vaivaswat Manvantar, who were the kings?" Soot Jee said - "In Shwetvaraah Kalp, on the 3rd day of the first year of Brahmaa, 28th Sat Yug of Vaivaswat Manvantar, Vaivaswat Manu was born. He did Tapasyaa on the banks of Sarayoo River for 100 Divine years and the king Ikshwaaku was born from his sneeze. He already had Divine knowledge by the Varadaan of Brahmaa Jee. He was a great devotee of Vishnu. He ruled for 36,000 years by His grace.
Manu's son was Ikshwaaku (ruled for 36,000 yrs)
Shraavast's son was Brihdashwa (34,900 yrs)
Trinshdash's son was Anranya (28,000 yrs)
All these kings were devotees of Vishnu. All kinds of prosperity bloomed in their kingdom. In the middle of the 3rd leg of Sat Yug,
Ruruk's son was Sagar (30,000 yrs) - he was the devotee of Shiv. He had 60,000 sons, named Saagar, from one queen. They got destroyed (burned) by Kapil Muni's Shaap. His second queen had one son named Asmanjas.
Asmanjas' son was Anshumaan
All kings from Sagar to Shrutsen were Shaiv
Shrutsen's son was Naabhaag
In the fourth leg of Sat Yug --
Ambareesh's son was Sindhudweep
Gokarn is said to be Shaiv - devotee of Ling
Deerghbaahu's son was Sudarshan (5,000 yrs by the grace of Devee) - He married to the princess of Kaashee's king. One day Mahaakaalee said to him in dream - "Vats, You go to Himaalaya along with your wife, because this Bharat Khand will be almost destroyed because of terrific storm. Several smaller islands have already sunk in the sea because of terrific storm. On the 7th day from today, a very terrific storm will come in Bhaarat Varsh also." Getting these instructions from Devee, Sudarshan went to Himaalaya along with main kings, Vaishya, Braahman and his servants and a huge part of Bhaarat was destroyed because of terrific storm. All people were also killed and the whole Prithvi got sunk in sea. After some time the land again appeared."
