This Bhairava is the protector of the temple. In Shiva temples, when the temple is closed, the keys are placed before Bhairava.
If you are visiting around late August or early September, then be sure to be a part of the biggest and most vibrant festival in Nepal called Indra Jatra, where the Kumari, is paraded across the city, in her golden palanquin. It is quite a sight to behold, as hundreds of masked men and devotees dance to traditional Newari music and pull on the chariots of the Lord Indra and Kumari.

BHAIRAV THE GRANDFATHER OF ALL NEWA
