Vajravarahi is another dakini associated with Heruka Cakra-samvara. Her status is not different from Vajrayogini. Vajravarahi is said to be the consort or the Prajna of Herukacakrasamvara. She is always depicted nude.

Vajravarahi is red in colour and stands on a reclining body of Bhairaba in dancing posture. Vajravarahi holds a Kartri in her right Hand on level of head and holds a kapala filled with blood in her left. She carries a khatvanga staff surmounted by three skulls. She wears a garland of fifty severed heads and various gold ornaments.

A special shrine is dedicated to Vajravarahi in Patan. For the practice of Sadhana of Vajravarahi an initiation (skt. diksha) is required. One of the peculiar feature of this deity is that she has an excrescence near the right ear, which resembles the face of a sow hence her name Vajravarahi. Her worship is very popular in Nepal. There are numerous Caryagita dedicated to her.
