Vettakkorumakan-Lesser known Son of Lord Shiva

Shri Vettakkorumakan is a very popular deity worshiped mainly in certain pockets of Kerala. Vettakkorumakan is the son of Shiva and Goddess Parvati – born when Shiva took the Kiratamurti form to test determination and perseverance of Arjuna in the Mahabharata.

Invocatory songs and hymns describe him as a dark hunter with two hands, having bow and arrow and a dagger, with a crown on his head adorned by peacock feathers and a crescent moon, with ruddy eyes and a prominent moustache. He wears a blue/black garment and is mounted on a horse.

Vettakkorumakan is worshipped according to Vedic tradition as a Shaivite deity
