As mentioned in the Puranas, Niruta was a giant and a regent or guardian of the south-west point of the world.
Niruta is embodied as of a green colour, and is said to have been raised to the dignity he enjoys in consequence of his severe reparation. On the head of Niruta he wears a crown. Again on his forehead Lord Shiva sing of sacred ashes.
Niruta has two pair of hands. One of the hands is empty and in the other three hands he holds a banner with the sign of a fish, a ring and a wine jug respectively.
The vehicle or 'vahana' of Niruta is a crocodile.
