The Kalabhairava Temple in Kathmandu is a Hindu shrine dedicated to Lord Kalabhairava, an incarnation of Lord Shiva. The temple is said to have a long history, dating back to the 8th century, and is considered one of the oldest and most revered temples in Kathmandu. According to legend, Lord Kalabhairava was the guardian deity of the city, and it was believed that his blessings brought peace and prosperity to the people of Kathmandu. The temple is also known for its unique black stone statue of Lord Kalabhairava, which is said to have miraculous powers and attracts a large number of devotees every year.
