A place by the name of "tiruvayintira puram" in north central Tamil
is said to have a hayagrIva temple on a hill.
The Tamil god murukan2' is said to have destroyed an *asura* who is
said to have had the head of a horse and the body ofa human; that is
considered a very old tradition.
It is intriguing to see the same icon being employed as a deamon in one
myth and as a god in another. How old is this hayagrIva viSNu icon?
