Bhairava is an extremely aggressive form of Lord Shiva, the supreme God of destruction. He is also regarded as his wandering form. There are as many as 64 Bhairavas, who are all guarding the cardinal points and controlling the directions. Kala Bhairava is the chief of the Bhairavas and is regarded as the supreme ruler of universal time. Kala Bhairava is also held as the guardian deity of the sanctum in the temple, and hence, it is a traditional practice to leave its keys in his custody, after the main shrine is locked. Bhairava’s mount is the dog. Of the 64 Bhairavas, 8 are of special significance and are considered as very important manifestations of Shiva. They are together known as Ashta Bhairavas, the eight-Bhairavas.
