Lord Kal Bhairav Temple

Back

This famous temple is dedicated to Lord Kal Bhairav, considered to be the protector (Kotwal) of the city. It is situated in the Bhairavnath- Vishweshwarganj locality. The story of the origin of Kala Bhairava has already been sold in the myth of the appearance of the fiery linga. Shiva revealed himself out of the column of light and when Brahma blasphemed him, Shiva created, out of the substance of his Anger, the fierce Bhairava, who sliced off Brahma's fifth head. Here Bhairava is none other than a form of Shiva.
