Bhairon Mandir – Neighborhood of Old Fort

Hi Friends! 🙂 Here’s the last episode in the series about the neighborhood of Old Fort. In this one, we visit the Bhairon Mandir which is situated adjacent to the Old Fort. The main deity of the temple is Kaal Bhairav – the fierce manifestation of Shiva associated with annihilation.

The temple is said to be established by the Pandava brothers during the building of their capital Indraprastha.

The depiction of the main deity inside the temple and the also, the modern sculptures of Hanuman and Bhima (one of the Pandavas)
