Lord Harihara is the fusion avatar of the two supreme Gods of the Trinity, Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu. Lord Harihara represents Lord Vishnu (Hari) and Lord Shiva (Hara) from the hindu tradition. Harihara is often termed as Shankarnarayana, Lord Shiva being Shankar and Lord Vishnu being Narayan. Thus Lord Harihara is worshipped and revered by both Vaishnavs and Shaivites. Harihar is portrayed as split down in the middle combining the half of Lord Vishnu and half of Lord Shiva. The half representing Lord Shiva in a blue complexion wearing tiger skin, trishul in one hand and water flowing from the head of the Lord. The other half representing lord Vishnu wearing tall crown and jewellery holding Gada in one hand downwards and Chakra in another hand upwards.

Harihara is also a name of a city in Devanagere district in the state of Karnataka. The legend behind this states that once there lived a Demon Guhasura in the dense jungle of Guharanaya. He was blessed with a gift by a Deva that no human, demon or God can kill him. Proud of himself, he started to harass the people of the place and inhumanity dominated the places around the jungle. To stop all this, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva came together in a new avatar, Harihara and killed the demon Guhasura. Now the place is called Harihar and it is geographically located at the centre of Karnataka. There is a very famous temple dedicated to Lord Harihar named as Harihareshwar in Karnataka.
