Aghasura (अघासुर) (also Aghasur) is an Asura in Hindu and Vedic mythology. He was one of the generals of King Kamsa.

In Bhagavata Purana

The Bhagavata Purana states that he assumed the form of a vast serpent. Krishna's companions, the cowherd boys, entered its mouth, mistaking it for a mountain cavern. After seeing this, Krishna then came to their rescue, killing Aghasura.

Aghapur (अघापुर) Village is in Bharatpur tahsil of Bharatpur district in Rajasthan. It is probably related with Aghasur.
