Surya and Chandra who were sitting nearby recognized the demon and alerted Vishnu Bhagavan. Vishnu used his Sudarshana Chakra and cut off the head of demon Saimhikeyan. The amrit that the Saimhikeyan had eaten had reached up to this throat; as a result both his head and body remained alive. From that day onward Saimhikeyan came to be known as Rahu and Ketu. The head portion was known as Rahu and the body portion was known as Ketu. Dwajasthambam or flag post seen in temples are known as ketu as they are headless. The demon got the name Ketu from the flag post as he had a headless body. As per Navagraha stotra Ketu has the color of the flower of palash tree. He has an extremely angry form.
