Kaalbhairav, the other and ferocious form of Lord shiva is considered as the protector of this holy city. As per hindu mythology, every holy city will have the main god/goddess of that place and will have protector of that place. Small temple yet powerful vibes.

Kaal Bhairav is rein carnation of Shiva. A must visit temple for visitors in Kashi. He is the Kotwal ( Keeper) of Kashi .Small temple but good energy. Go between 12 am- 2 pm to avoid rush.
