Tamdrin is another protective manifestation of Avalokiteshvara. It is associated with the Hindu god Vishnu, he is red with a white face on the right and green grace on the left and has a horse’s head in his hair, a crown of skulls, a tiger skin around his waist and a garland of 52 chopped off heads. On his back are the wings of Garuda. In his six hands are a lotus, club sword, skull cup, snare, and axes. Under his four legs a sun disc and corpses. Tamdrin in red and Dorje in blue often serve as guardian gods at the entrance of temples.
