It was a quick darshan without any major rush, though we had visited on Monday.

Interesting was that we offer alcohol to the god here, and when a plate of alcohol was touched to the idol, (and tipped) the alcohol in the plate quickly disappeared.

Definitely the idol drinks up (could be a concealed pipe, which we couldn't see, but so what) the alcohol.

There was also a very beautiful, tall lamp structure with hundreds of lamps. Must look beautiful when all these lamps are lit.

Kaal Bhairava is the fierce manifestation of Lord Shiva associated with annihilation. Kaal Bhairava temple is believed to be associated with the Tantra cult, a heretical secret religious group with brawny black magic nuances. The temple premises are mottled with holy men with ash smeared body and long matted hair.

The Kaal Bhairava Temple houses a Shiva linga under a banyan tree inside the periphery of the temple opposite to the statue of Nandi Bull. Kaal Bhairava temple also depicts beautiful sculptures of other deities along with Lord Vishnu. On the eve of Mahasivarathri, the temple premises put on a festive mood when this shrine is packed with ardent devotees. The unique feature of this deity and the temple is that liquor is given as offering to lord Kaal Bhairava. The priest offers some from the bottle and returns the remaining to the devotee as Prasad. The temple is about 5-6 KM from Mahakaleshwar Temple.

One may offer wine to the Lord here. Lord however, takes very little and returns the maximum part to the devotee as His Prasad. Wine is sold at the gate of the temple. The priests are very cooperative.

A temple dedicated to the Kala Bairava - Yama (God of Death) an incarnation of Lord Shiva. The temples oil lamp post is tall and definitely looked scary. The Idol in this temple is offered Liquor as part of Pooja and the liquor is "consumed" by the idol with no trace of the liquid anywhere once consumed as many archaeologists and atheists did try tracing it out using technology but with no luck. Definitely a must watch for strong SHIVAITE worshippers.
