In south-Indian accounts, Devasena is generally depicted as an antithesis of Valli, her co-wife; together they complete the god. Devasena is generally depicted with Kartikeya and often is also accompanied by Valli.Devasena does not enjoy independent worship, but is worshipped as Kartikeya's consort in most of his temples.
