Kal Bhairo (Madurai Veeran)

The eighteenth deity that we worship is Kal Bhairo or Madurai Veeran.

Kal Bhairo, also known as Madurai Veeran (Victor of Madurai) or Kasi Rajan, is the fourteenth avatar of  Lord Shiva. He is the guardian of Mariamma’s temple. His puja is always performed last, giving him thanks and praise for allowing us to complete Mariamma’s poosai (puja) successfully.

Madurai Veeran stands for truth, victory, and justice. He is often worshipped by those who have conflicts with the law. Sincere devotion to this Swami leads to control of the mind.
