Kaal Bhairav Temple-The Guardian Deity#Temple
Kal Bhairav is a gatekeeper of lord Shiva and worshipped by Hindus. Temple is located on the banks of the River Kshipra that is dedicated to the worship of Kal Bhairav, the chief of the eight Bhairavas (Lord Shiva) described in Saivite tradition.
It is famous for the fact that liquor is offered to the temple deity as one of the five tantric ritual offerings known as panchamakara - madya (alcohol), maansa (meat) and others. In older times, all five offerings were made to the deity, but now only alcohol is offered and the other four offerings are in form of symbolic rituals.
