No one knows much about the Black Bhairab. It was found, lying face down in a forest and dates back to the 4th or 5th century.

Bhairab represents the powerful, destructive forces of Shiva and is in Kathmandu’s Durbar Square to stay.

It was lovely being back with Immy the other afternoon.

Thankful two years hasn’t changed the place much.

  1. Hopefully the place wont be change in coming days ahead as it is enlisted in world heritage site and We call these (Kathmandu, Lalitpur, and other) Durbar Squares as living heritage.
