(Note: the name Indriyeshvara is a compound of the Sanskrit words इन्द्रिय, Indriya “chief, lord, king”, also “power, force, the quality which belongs especially to the mighty Lord Indra” + Ishvara “mighty, ruler, lord, god” (sometimes syn. Shiva), and it therefore means something like “Lord of lords”. इन्द्रिय, Indriya also means “sense, sense organ, sense faculty”, so the name is also translated as “Lord of the Faculties”).
