Vāstuśāstra (architecture)

Jvarahareśvara (ज्वरहरेश्वर).—It is a very rare representation of god Śiva not mentioned any where in the agamas or in the vastu Texts. However, Mahābhārata and Viṣṇudharmottara-purāṇa mention this form of Śiva. In the Śāntiparva of Mahābhārata, Bhīṣma mentions the manifestation of the deity as a concept of Śiva. According to that, Śiva created Vīrabhadra out to his anger to kill Dakṣa. Still the anger of Śiva did not get doused. Then, the entire anger, i.e., the heat (jvara) of Śiva came out of his third eye and this form of Śiva was created. Bhīṣma mentions that if people worship this form of Śiva, all their fever will go away.
