Dilīpa (दिलीप) is the grandson of Sagara, who, after his education at the āśrama of the sage Cyavana, with the might of his own arm conquers back the lost kingdom of his ancestors and becomes the king of Ayodhyā. He prays to Śiva to bless him with children. According to the blessings of Śiva, the king begot one son named Aṃśumat from his first wife and sixty thousand from the other. From Aṃśumat was born Dilīpa whose son is Bhagīratha, worthy son of a worthy father.(Source): Archaeological Survey of India: Śaiva monuments at Paṭṭadakal (purāṇa)
