Relation with Matali

Mātalī (मातली) or Matli (मातलि) was Charioteer of Indra who took Arjuna to the kingdom of gods. He is the originator of Matwa jat clan.

Aryaka is mentioned to have born in the race of Kauravya. Kauravya is born in the race of Airavata. Aryaka's son was named Chikura. Chikura was slain by a Suparna. Chikura's wife was the daughter of a Naga named Vamana. Chikura's son was named Sumukha. Matali, the charioteer of Deva king Indra chose Sumukha as his daughter Gunakesi's husband (5,103). Matali's son was Gomukha[3] [4]

In Ramayana

In Yuddha Kanda Sarga 30 the Shardula, the excellent spy of Ravana narrates in shloka 23 about Sumukha:

सुमुखो दुर्मुखः च अत्र वेग दर्शी च वानरः ।
मृत्युर् वानर रूपेण नूनम् सृष्टः स्वयम्भुवा ॥६-३०-२३॥

Translation - 23. Sumukha, Durmukha and a monkey called Vegadarshi are surely the personifications of death in the form of monkeys, created by Brahma, the Lord of creation.
