Hāṭakeśvara (हाटकेश्वर).—Soḍḍhala has also referred to Hāṭakeśvara twice in the text. An aged sage Pātālagaṇa by name has been said to be a devotee of Hāṭakeśvara. Having received Brahma lotuses for the worship of the deity in Caitrikā Parvan cn the full moon day of Caitra, he returned from heaven to the earth.

In the second reference Soḍḍhala suggests that Hāṭakeśvara, the original deity of the sacred shrine of Hāṭakeśvara was in the Nāgaloka; the serpent region. This suggestion can he obtained from the mention of Tārākirīṭa who worships Hāṭakeśvara on one Aṣṭamī day, in the serpent region.

At present, Hāṭakeśvara is a favourite god of the Nāgaras of Gujarat. According to Mānaśaṅkarbhāi in Nāgrotpatti, Hāṭakeśvara is an original god of Nāga people but later on he was received by Nāgaras when the god arrived at Vaḍanagara from the Pātāla region.
