Hindu - A demon created by Shiva. Rahu was sent by Jalandhara to seize Sakti, wife of Shiva, and the god created Kurttimukha by a blast of power from his eyes. When Rahu ran away in fright, the hungry Kurttimukha was forced to eat itself until all that remained was the face. Also known as Kurttimukha.
