A monster from Hindu belief that was created by Shiva. It had 1,000 arms, feet and flaming eyes. He had horns coming out from his sides and is known to have killed the moon good with just one of his toes. He chased away the Garuda, cut off the hands of Agni so no fire could be created, plucked ht eyes out of Surya the sun god and made Indra’s strongest warrior’s arm stiff and unable to move. Shiva had created this monster out of his father-in-laws insult to him. His father-in-law apologised and Shiva accepted.
