Kaal Bhairav Jayanti 2026 Date


Kalashtami, also known as Kala Ashtami, is a Hindu festival honoring Lord Bhairava, a fierce manifestation of Lord Shiva linked with devastation. He correctly punishes offenders and protects submissive followers. Lord Kala Bhairava rules over all 64 Bhairavas, which are commanded by 8 Bhairavas.

Bhairav Ashtami, Bhairava Jayanti, and Kala-Bhairava Ashtami are all names for Kala Bhairav Ashtami. Kalashtami, also known as Kalabhairav Jayanti, is observed in North India during the month of Margashirsha (December-January), but it is observed in South India during the month of Kartik (November-December). It should be noted, however, that both calendars commemorate Kaal Bhairav Jayanti on the same day. It is a sacred day celebrating the birth of Lord Bhairava, Shiva's ferocious form.
