Located in a crowdy market place. The temple loses its charm over the sounds and crowd. It will be ideal though for people who want to see normal day life of marketers and buyer in Nepal

The akash Bhairab (Sky Bhairab -- a fearsome form of the god Shiva) has been restored beautifully, but unfortunately it is situated on Indrachowk, one of the busiest junctions in Kathmandu (near Asan), so it is often missed by the motorcycle-dodging tourists.

This temple is situated at Indra chowk in a busy road. This temple is near Kathmandu durbar square (5 mins walk). This temple is also known as temple of Indra The god king. The statue of Akash Bhairav is really grand. The head of Akash Bhairav was dug several hundreds years ago and it is taken out to exhibit during Indrajatra festival that falls on Sept/Oct.... This head is also considered as the head of first Kirata King Yalamber who ruled Kathmandu valley during 785 B.C.
The temple is two storyed pagoda style renovated few years before. You can see it from the road. The statue can be seen from the road but Indra jatra is the best time to see the Akash Bhairav idol when it is taken out for public to watch and worship.
