Bhairava (Sanskrit: "Terrible" or "Frightful"), sometimes known as Bhairo or Bhairon or Virvar, is the fierce manifestation of Lord Shiva associated with annihilation. He is one of the most important deities of any South Indian/Sri Lankan Temples,
He is depicted ornamented with a range of twisted serpents, which serve as earrings, bracelets, anklets, and sacred thread (yajnopavita). He wears a tiger skin and a ritual apron composed of human bones. Bhairava has a dog (Shvan) as his divine vahana (vehicle).
On the last day of the Temple Annual Maha Festival is a Bairav Pooja which is conducted to thank for the successful annual festival.
