Apsarasas are the divinely beautiful dancers of svarga lōka. The following section from the itihāsa – mahābhārata gives some of their names. Some of them married kings and some married RSIs and started great dynasties and lineages. Some writers have suggested that they were connected to water sources.

“Thus addressed, the ascetic Ashtavakra said, in a sweet voice, Let the dance proceed. Then Urvara and Misrakesi, and Rambha and Urvasi, and Alumbusha and Ghritachi, and Chitra and Chitrangada and Ruchi, and Manohara and Sukesi and Sumukhi and Hasini and Prabha, and Vidyuta, and Prasami and Danta and Vidyota and Rati,–these and many other beautiful Apsaras began to dance. “
