Ravana was a great devotee of Lord Shiva and Parashurama is an avatar of Lord Vishnu and also a devotee of Lord Shiva.

I know TV serials/comic stories are just baseless so I want to know if Ravana has come into contact with Parashurama during his childhood or his early life before Ramayana took place.

I know one incident where Parashurama kills Sahasrabahu (Kartavirya Arjuna with 1000 arms) who in turn is known for defeating Ravana once.

So did Ravana and Parashurama ever meet? If yes, how/what was the relation between the two and which Hindu scriptures talk about it?

    AFAIK, if they had met, Parasurama would have killed Ravana. – Mr_Green Jun 28 '15 at 16:36

    @Mr_Green Parshuram and Ravan both were brahmin so Parshuram would never killed Ravana, Parshuram was only to kill Kshtriyas who forgot the fundamentals of dharma. – Vipul Hadiya Jun 29 '15 at 12:38

    No. They never met. But as you rightly pointed out, Ravana had an encounter with Kartaveeryarjuna (btw sahasra not sahastra) who was defeated in battle single-handedly by Parasurama. – user1195 Jul 3 '15 at 18:28
  • @VipulHadiya parshuram Did End The kshtriya Kuul 21 times - so who says That he killed Only the Kshtriyas who forgot the fundamentals of dharama! Parshuram Killed the Innocent Kshatriyas Just Because of Deeds By Kartavera Arjuna he killed his Father . It was all in anger & Ego – user4701 Jan 25 '16 at 17:52
