Story of the Temple

Legend associated with the origin of Shri Batuk Bhairav Temple :

Kaal Bhairava is known as Batuka Brahma Vishnu, and is worshiped by Mahesh and treasure of mercy.
Kashi Puradhipati Devadhidev Mahadev resides in the divine city of 33 Koti gods. The scriptures and Puranas are witnesses to this and the devout people of Kashi also believe in this.
Baba Shri Kashi Vishwanath Darbar is special. It is believed that Bhairav Baba in the form of Kotwal is responsible for the maintenance of their city.
The child form of Kal Bhairav at Kamachha is considered to be less than eight years old. This is why he is called Batuk Bhairav. This temple is also mentioned in the Puranas. It is said that the temple was renovated by King Balwant Singh in the 16th century. They are called the planetary kings. Whoever comes here is freed from planetary evils by merely visiting them.
According to Shiva Purana, Batuk Bhairav or Bal Bhairav is the child form of Kal Bhairav. This form of Lord Bhairava is considered to be sattvic, beautiful and gentle. By worshiping Lord Bhairava in this form, the devotees also attain all kinds of happiness and Riddhi-Siddhi.
If the Bhairava Mantra is chanted in this form of the Lord, Bhairava is immediately pleased and blesses the devotee and all wishes will be fulfilled. Batuk Bhairavaji is the son of Durga who is immediately pleased. By the practice of Batuk Bhairav, a person can remove worldly obstacles in his life and achieve worldly benefits.

The mantra for worshiping Batuk Bhairav is-
The mantra of Sadhana
: 'Seventh Bantukaye Kshu Krishna Apaduddharaka Kuru Kuru Batukaya Hrim Batukaye Svaha..' Recite the said mantra for 11 days till 21st Tuesday. After chanting the mantra, recite the Aparadha-Kshama Stotra. In the worship of Bhairav, one should also recite Ashtottara Shat-Namavali to Shri Batuk Bhairav.

Batuk Bhairav is always pleased with this sadhana and stays with the seeker to provide security and save him from premature death. Such a seeker never lacks wealth and lives a life full of opulence.
If the seeker continuously cultivates Batuk Bhairava, Bhairava gives him vision in object form and grants him some Siddhis by which the seeker brings welfare to the people.
According to mythology, in ancient times there was a demon named Apad, who had obtained a boon by severe penance in which his death was possible only from a five-year-old boy and no one could kill him.
After receiving this boon, he spread his terror in the three worlds. It is believed that while the gods were looking for a solution to this problem, a stream of light came out of the bodies of all the gods and a five-year-old Batuk was born.
