According to Hindu mythology Tarkasur prayed to god Shiva and seeking boon that no one could kill him but Shiva denied him this special gift, then he seek another boon from lord Shiva that only your son could kill him.
Tarkasur was confident that he will live long as Shiva’s son was only of six days.
Feeling the patronage of the blessing, Tarkasur started making all kind of troubles in heaven.
Tarkasur troubled the angels which led to the angels going to lord Shiva on which his son Kartikeya killed Tarkasur.
But later he was confronted by the angels that Tarkasur was the follower of his father on which he realized his mistake which led to god Vishnu asking Kartikeya to make a temple for realization of his mistake, where he shall prey every day.
