Sri Kal (Kaal) Bhairav (Bhairavar) idol
Kaal Bhairav is one of the most ferocious manifestations of Lord Shiva. Once Lord Brahma grew arrogant and egoistic. During those times he had five heads one on top of the four heads. Lord Shiva wanted to teach him a lesson and make him more committed and responsible to his task. Therefore he created Kaal Bhairav from his nail and thus Kaal Bhairav manifested as an incarnation of Lord Shiva.
Kaal Bhairav moved towards Brahma and severed his top head with his nail. The skull of Braham also called as Brahma Kapala got stuck to his hand and this is depicted in the iconographic image of Lord Kaal Bhairav found in all temples. Kaal Bhairav’s vehicle or vahan is a black dog. Kaal Bhairave appears naked like a child and wanders like a mendicant. He is so easily pleased and blesses his devotees with wealth, health and prosperity.
