When Daitya Hiranyakashipu conquered the universe, he conquered up till Swarga.

Text 13: O my dear King, Hiraṇyakaśipu was always drunk on strong-smelling wines and liquors, and therefore his coppery eyes were always rolling. Nonetheless, because he had powerfully executed great austerities in mystic yoga, although he was abominable, all but the three principal demigods — Lord Brahmā, Lord Śiva and Lord Viṣṇu — personally worshiped him to please him by bringing him various presentations with their own hands.

Have the demons ever successfully conquered Brahma loka or Shiva loka?

  • I do not think so. Vaikunth Loka, Satya Loka and Shiva loka are for people who are going to attain enlightenment due to either Bhakti towards Shiva/Vishnu or meditation and self knowledge.
