The temple is one of the very oldest temples in Varanasi located near the outer side of city close by spice wholesale market and also nearby city’s most iconic and oldest or you can say first post office. For Hindu religious people it has huge historical and cultural value because the temple is dedicated to lord Kaal Bhairav who is considered to be a form of Lord Shiva. The hindus also believe that even death is also afraid of Kal Bhairav lord.
Lord Kal Bhairav is also king of Gods and seems to be supreme lord of Ghosts and witches too. Hindus believe that Lord Bhairav is chief police officer of creation. So if anyone in this world wishes to live he has to ultimately take permission from Lord Bhairav. This is the reason whoever office takes incharge as District Magistrate of Varanasi before joining his duty first comes to temple to worship and take permission and blessings of lord.
