About Batuk Bhairav Mandir

A child form of Bhairav Nath, Batuk Bhairav is believed to be an incarnation of Lord Shiv. Many miracles and stories are associated with this temple in Varanasi which is centuries old. The temple is the same as it has been for years and no changes have been made to it. This temple is a great attraction for the Tantrik community and Aghoris. However, even common men who believe in Shree Batuk Bhairav visit this temple in large numbers. Here, in the temple an Akhand Deep or eternal lamp burns forever and as per common belief, has magical powers of Lord Bhairav. One can find many dogs or Bhairav’s bahan or carrier in the vicinity of the temple. Quite harmless, these dogs create a shankh or blowing conch like sound during the aarti. It is believed that the oil from Akhand Deep can cure many diseases and wounds. It also acts as a cure for dog bites it applied immediately.
