The city of Sawai Madhopur is known worldwide for Ranthambore
National Park that has the largest number of tigers
in the region. However very less people are aware of
the fact that the city also has a number of other attractions
that are equally beautiful and are attractive in their
own way. Very few people know that the city also has
some wonderful temples that have a lot of religious
and historic significance.
Kala Gaura Bhairav Temple in Sawai Madhopur is one
example of the temples in the city that are known for
their uniqueness. Established in the heart of the city
by slicing a hillock, Kala Gaura Bhairav Temple in Sawai
Madhopur is one of the few temples in the country that
practices tantrik kriyas. The uniqueness of this temple
lies in the fact that the idols of Bhairav that are
generally kept at the entrance in most of the temples
across the country are kept inside the temple as the
main deity at Kala Gaura Bhairav Temple in Sawai Madhopur.
This temple mainly belongs to two Bhairav brothers namely
Kala Bhairav and Gaura Bhairav whose idols are kept
inside the main area of the temple. Other idols in the
temples belong to Lord Ganesha, Lord Shiva and goddess
Durga. The idol of Lord Ganesha on way to the main temple
area is worth seeing.
It is believed that when Alaudin Khilji had attacked
Ranthambore, King Hammir had visited the temple and
had made a wish to surface victorious in the war. He
swore that if he wins the battle, he would devote every
thing to the lord. But unfortunately even after winning
over, he had to behead himself due to some confusion.
It is said that if you make a wish at the Kala Gaura
Bhairav Temple in Sawai Madhopur, you would definitely
get it. Therefore the tourists visiting Sawai Madhopur
must go to this temple once.
