Heheya kingdom (also known as Haihaya, Haiheya, Heiheya, etc.) was one of the many kingdoms ruled by Chandravanshi Kshatriya kings in the central and western India. It was the strongest of the kingdoms and had the powerful ruler Kartavirya Arjuna who even defeated Rakshasa Ravana. Its capital was Mahishmati (modern city of Maheshwar) on the banks of river Narmada in Madhya Pradesh. They conquered many other kingdoms of India.

Talajangha was an allied kingdom of Heheya, probably to the east of it. This is however, considered to be largely fiction and there is no historical evidence for this.
