According to Hindu Religion, the entire universe contains 7 upper and 7 lower worlds and it is created and controlled by Lord Vishnu.
The details about the 14 worlds are mentioned in ancient Vedas, Puranas and in many other sacred texts.
According to legend, the humans would reach the respective lokas based on their past karmic deeds, and those who have done good karmic deeds, would reach the upper level of Lokas, like Swarga Loka or Satya Loka. Hence it is advisable for us to do good karmic deeds in this birth, in order to avoid taking rebirths.
