Elegua (also spelled Eleggua) is an Orisha, a deity of roads in the religions of Santeria, Umbanda, Quimbanda, CandomblÊ and in Palo Mayombe. He is syncretized with either Saint Michael, Saint Anthony of Padua, or the Holy Child of Atocha. Elegua is known as ÈᚣÚ-Ẹlẚ́gbåra in the Yoruba religion and is closely associated with Eshu. Ẹlẚ́gbåra means the "master of force" in the Yoruba language.

EleguĂĄ is known in Cuba and Puerto Rico as the orisha and "owner" of caminos, or roads and paths. All ceremonies and rituals in Santeria must first have the approval of EleguĂĄ before progressing. He is the messenger of Olofi. Within the "Regla de Ocha" of Cuba, he slightly differs from Echu, who in this case is seen as his brother, by having less dangerous and less aggressive characteristics. EleguĂĄ moves silently; in contrast, Echu "breaks through". Manifestations of EleguĂĄ includes Akefun, Aleshujade, Arabobo, Awanjonu, LalafĂĄn, ObasĂ­n, Oparicocha, and Osokere.

There is a story in Santeria in which Olodumare gives EleguĂĄ the keys to the past, present, and future; for this reason, EleguĂĄ is often depicted holding a set of keys. A figure of EleguĂĄ may be placed in the house behind the entrance door.

Elekes are typically received as part of the initiatory Collares/Elekes Ceremony in Regla de Ocha.
