Story Of Demon Agnimukha

Demon Surapadman controlled all the known worlds and unleashed a reign of terror. He was finally annihilated by Murugan or Kartikeya. There are is an interesting story of Agnimukha, the second son of Demon Surapadman And Padmakomala.

Padmakomala, was the daughter of Vishwakarma, the divine architect. He was forced to give her in marriage to Demon Surapadman. The couple had four sons and they showed extraordinary courage and strength. Agnimukha was the second of the demon couple.

As a fetus in his mother’s womb, Agnimukha emitted sparks and thus he got the name ‘one with fire emitting mouth.’

He was also the favorite grandson of Surasai, mother of Supradaman. She blessed the little baby with a magic bow and called him Agnimukha – he who can spew fire from his mouth at will.

It is said that during the reign of Surapadman, Agnimukha defeated the eight elephants who guard the eight cardinal directions. As per some scriptures, he also defeated Garuda and the Swan of Brahma.
