Tārakāri (Slayer of Tāraka)
In Kumāra Tantra this form of Murukan is depicted with six faces and twelve hands. One of his right hands is in the abhaya pose and in the rest five right hands, he bears śakti, the pestle, sceptre, disc and noose. One of the left hands is in the varada pose, and in the remaining five left hands he holds the thunderbolt, bow, shield, creeper and a demigod.
This Tārakāri image is in Virālimalai mūlasthānam. The Tanikaip Purānam also corroborates the Kumāra Tantra description. We find this same image at Uttaramērūr Murukan temple in Chengleput district.
