In certain Shiva temples I have seen Nataraja posture idol as Dwarapalaga at entrace of Shiva linga sannadhi. Is it Nataraja being Dwarapalaga or is it just a posture? What Shaiva agama says about this?

  • Shiva is never dvarapala. – user17294 Feb 21 '19 at 16:04
  • In Puranas, Skandha and Vishakha re dvarapalas of Shiva/Shakti temples and Jaya and Vijaya of Vishnu temple – user17294 Feb 21 '19 at 16:06
  • A picture would be useful to decide. – TheLittleNaruto Feb 21 '19 at 16:14
