These two immortal twins are the heralds of the dawn in Hindu stories. They have golden skin and bright eyes that have the power to melt away the chill of the night. They travel through the skies on a chariot with three wheels pulled by a flock of birds. They are excellent healers, and can heal the injuries of both humans and the gods.

The Nasatyas are also known as the Aswins.
