Hidden fact about Kal Bhairav Temple in Varanasi

Hidden fact about Kal Bhairav Temple in Varanasi

There is also a police station in Kashi where even today the incharge of this police station does not dare to sit in the main chair of the police station, even if he is sitting, then by putting a second chair next to the chair in his office.

Actually this police station is called Varanasi Kotwali's in charge of Baba Kalabhairav. Not only this, no DM or SSP has inspected this police station till date because he himself comes here before his joining to seek blessings and the one whom Baba wants, he works in the city. So let's know what is the unheard story of this temple and this police station.

Varanasi is the city's Kotwali police station in the Visheshwarganj area and just behind this station is the temple of Baba Kalabhairava. The current in-charge Rajesh Singh said that this tradition is not present today. This tradition has been going on for years, two chairs have been installed in the office of this inspector of Kotwali police station. Baba Kaal Bhairav ​​sits on the main chair in which the inspector of this station sits on the next chair. Not only this, Rajesh Singh said that Baba deals with the crime, social work and complaints of the complainants in this police station area. That is why they are also called Kotwal of the city of Vishwanath.

Whichever IAS and IPS is posted in the city or any policeman posted in this police station, they start their work only after worshiping Baba Kaal Bhairav. The soldier posted at this police station Surya Nath Chandel said that I have been stationed in this police station myself for 18 years. I have not yet seen any SHO sitting in his chair. The inspector in charge sits next to the chair. However, no one knows when and who started this tradition. But this tradition is believed to have been going on since the time of the British. In 1715, Bajirao Peshwa built the Kal Bhairav ​​temple. According to Vastu Shastra, this temple remains the same till date. Mahanta-Pandit Naveen Giri of Baba Kaal Bhairav ​​temple told, there has always been a special tradition here.

Every big administrative and police officer who comes here first sees Baba and takes his blessings. Aarti is performed 4 times daily in Kaal Bhairav ​​temple. The most important of the night is the Aarti. Before the Aarti, Baba is bathed and adorned. But during that time no one is allowed inside the temple except for the priest. Baba offers mustard oil. An unbroken lamp always burns.

At the same time, Batuk Bhairav ​​temple Mahant Vijay Puri said, 'Brahma condemned Shiva with a face of Panchmukhi. Angry Kaal Bhairav ​​had cut off the face of Brahma with his fingernail. The face of Brahma was stuck in Kaal Bhairav's nail, which was not moving. Bhairava got upset and traveled to all the worlds, but could not get rid of Brahman killing. Then Lord Vishnu sent Kalabhairava to Kashi. On reaching Kashi, he was freed from the blame of killing Brahm and after that he was established here.
