Story Relate to this
Shiva Maha Purana mentions the story of Kaal bhairav. The legend says that once a controversy arose among Lord Vishnu, Lord Shiva and Lord Brahma that who was the powerfull of them. In the arguments Brahmaji passed a comment which made Shiva furious. And in his furious forms he cut off one of the faces of Lord Brahma. Outraged Lord Shiva took a destructive form of Kaal Bhairav. In this Avatar, he came riding on a black dog with a baton in one hand. This horrifying form of Lord Shiva scared the demigods. Seeing this, Lord Brahma apologized in front of Kaal Bhairav and realized his mistake. After being convinced by all the Gods, saints, sages and Lord Brahma himself, Lord Shiva restored to his original form and calmed down.
Kal Bhairava’s vehicle is a black dog and in some places dogs are fed on the day.Shiva devotees take morning bath and perform pujas. Special pujas are also offered to dead ancestors in the morning. Staunch devotees keep vigil at night and narrate stories of Mahakaleshwar.
