Called the "Great Black", Mahakala is unique to Tibet and is called Mong-po, and was accepted as a tutelary deity of Mongolia in the 17th century under the name Yeke Gara, under Tibetan influence.

Its Chinese name, Dahei Wang or Dahei Tian is only the transcription of the Sanskrit name maha (great Da in Chinese), Kala (black-Hei) adding Wang meaning king. Dahei Wang - The Great Black King, or Dahei Tian Great Black Sky.

Mahakala has never been the subject of a cult in China itself.

In Japan , mainly in the Shingon school, where its image would appear to come from Mongolia, and answering the name of Daikokuten Great black sky) or simply Daikoku (Great Black), it does not have the same symbolism and was revered from the 17th century as one of the 7 deities of happiness with Ebisu, Benzai Ten, Bishamon ten, Fukurokuju, Jurôjin and Hotei, a motley group of deities belonging to both Buddhism and Chinese Taoism artificially created in the 17th century by the Tenkai monk died in 1643 (Postume name Jigen Daishi)

In Tibet Mahakala is both a Dharmapala and a protective god (Yi dam).

The Dharmapala are the protectors of the Dharma, guardians of the teachings.

This name denoting the deities assuming the task of protecting practitioners and teachings in vajrayana and dzogchen.

In terms of symbols, the Buddha, sitting under the bodhi tree, experiences two things. First of all, he saw a Ferris wheel. This wheel embraces the whole of conditioned existence, it is of the same extent as the cosmos, it contains all living beings. It rotates non-stop: it turns day and night, it turns life after life, it turns era after era. We cannot see when it has begun to turn, and we cannot yet see when it will stop turning: only a Buddha sees this.
