Neither circular, nor verticle, nor parallel time, this is the Lord of the Time of all the spheres. Only looking into the eyes, you will know what Time is. Please spend atleast two hours here.

This, and all of Durbar Square, is a must-see when visiting Nepal. Fun to see all the pigeons and wandering cows, too!

Kala Bhairav is the terrifying avatar of Lord Shiva who is also called the Lord of Time and Death. He is worshipped by the Hindus. The idol of Kala Bhairav is seen standing in a violent form, stepping over a dead body holding a decapitated head in one hand. According to a legend, Kala Bhairav had decapitated one of Lord Brahma's five heads and as punishment, was made to carry that head and roam around for many years till he was forgiven. This avatar of Lord Shiva is fierce and unforgiving. He is mostly associated with vetala (ghouls) and pisaca (ghosts). The name 'Bhairava' literally means a terrifying form that is not afraid of anything. Thus, he can protect his devotees. He is also believed to be the supreme one after Lord Vishnu and can create, sustain and dissolve life on earth.

Pray, light lamps (for purchase), take pictures, or just be awed by the magnificence! You can't miss it in Durbar Square because it is unenclosed and clearly visible from the street.
