Origin of Bhairava
One of the origins of Bahirava is that he was initially a Rashasa as mentioned in the Vishnu Puran. It is said that once Goddess Vaishno went into a cave and left a monkey to guard the entrance. Bhairava, unmindful of the powers of the Goddess, infringed on her privacy and entered the temple. A fierce battle ensued wherein the Goddess turned herself into her Chandi avatar and cut off the head of Bhairava. When Bhairava prayed for mercy Goddess Vaishno forgave and granted him that he will be considered as a God from now onwards and be liberated.
Legend has it that Pandava Kaleen Sri Kilkari Bhairav Temple, as it is popularly called, was built the legendry Pandavas. It is believed that the temple at Purana Qila was constructed when Pandavas were in the process of constructing their capital at Indraprastha(Now called as NEW DELHI) . Legend
The story of this temple goes way back to the ancient times when once Veer-Langur was assigned the task of guarding a cave which Goddess Vaishno had entered. As a matter of chance, Lord Bhairav tried to enter the cave. The much annoyed Devi took the form of Goddess 'Chandi' & killed him.As a result of the killing, the head was detached from the body and landed at a place, which is now called Bhairav Ghati. It is there where the temple has been constructed.After the magnificently powerful sword of the Goddess detached the head of Bhairav, he prayed to the goddess for mercy. #BHAIRAV#BHAIRON#bhairavnathtemple#Bhairavtemple#kalkaji#kalkajimandir#templesofindia#temple #🏰#ॐ #namaste#spiritual#🙏#🕉️#HARHARMAHADEV#OMNAMAHSHIVAYA#Temple#hindutemple#hindu#Hinduism#bliss#blessings#SANGHMAHAKAAL#BATUKNATH#KAALBHAIRAV#BHAIRAVI
