ANTIQUITY 

Later his peerless career crowned him with the generalship of celestial army along with Devendra's daughter as wife.  Another legend narrates that he was also called Saravanabhava due to the fact of the seed of Siva thrown into the forest of Sara of seeds. where he was born according to another story.  Whatever may be his origin, he was undoubtedly the most courageous among the celestials, and with his help alone Devendra killed Taraka, Surapadma, Mahisha etc. Moreover, he is represented as Kumara of great beauty and of irresistible attraction. He is the Prince charming among gods. He accepted the cock to adorn his banner and Mayura as his mount. the two forms of Surapadma at the time of his death at his hands.

There are several other myths and legends finding coveted places in the scriptures. They bring out the glory of this War Lord, but strange to find that his worship or popularity is little known in North India; rather he is not given wide publicity as found in the South. especially Tamil Nadu, which if termed Muruga Nadu, justifies selection. says one enthusiast.
