Duhsala (दुशाला) (alias Dushala or Dussala) was the name of the sister of Duryodhana as given in the Indian epic Mahābhārata. She was married to Jayadratha the king of Sindhu and Sauvira. Jayadratha was slain by Arjuna in the Kurukshetra War.

Dussala had a son named Suratha. Her grandson challenged Arjuna to fight, when the latter approached the country of Sindhus. This event took place after the Kurukshetra War, when to collect tribute for Yudhisthira's Aswamedha sacrifice from the king of the Sindhu was approached. But Arjuna considering Duryodhana's sister as his own sister, he spared life of Suratha's son and left the country of Sindhus intact.
