  • Bhairavnath temple in Bhaktapur, located 13 km east of Kathmandu, capital city of Nepal. The three-storied temple was built by King Jagat Jyoti Malla and improve by King Bhupatindra Malla. It was dedicated to Lord Bhairava, the dreadful aspect of Lord Shiva. Legend says that Lord Bhairava head was cut off by a tantric expert in order to keep him in Bhaktapur.
