There are five Jambhalas - yellow, white, black, green and red - of which yellow is the most common form. Each form has its own special significance and attributes. Yellow Zambhala is depicted adorned with a crown, silk garments, and beautiful gold and jeweled ornaments. He is seated imperially upon a throne, with a bijapuraka (citron) fruit in his right hand and a mongoose in his left hand. The mongoose constantly spews forth precious jewels and treasures, and represents Jambhala's victory over the nagas.
