“Akash Bhairav Temple: Indra mandir”
Reviewed June 9, 2011

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.
