Are Thor and Indra the same?


Indra and Thor are different if we compare.

  • Indra is the supreme god (King) of heaven, Thor is not the king of Valhalla.
  • Indra has Vajra as his weapon made from the bones of the sage Dadhichi, where as Thor owns a different weapon.
  • Indra is carried by Airavata (five-headed Divine Elephant), Thor does not have this.

Common thing is that both are associated with thunder, lightning, storms so is Zeus in the Greek mythology.
