Bhairav Mandir is situated near the Purana Qila and Pragati Maidan. This Temple is dedicated to Bhairavji, an fierce incarnation of Lord Shiva, also known as the destroyer among the Hindu trinity of Gods. The most amazing factor of this Temple is that the reigning Deity of this Temple is not offered milk as usual in Shiva Temples, instead alcohol is offered. However, a regular Temple is here called “Doodhiya Bhairav Temple”, where one can offer milk.

The unique concrete cow built here, which is under serve as water taps is interesting.
