Kalabairavar Temple Dharmapuri

I have been very regular to the Kalabairavar Temple in Dharmapuri. Devotees from near and far visit this temple to pray for health, wealth, employment, success in business and so on. 

The Kalabairavar or Kalabairava is another form of Lord Shiva. There are several beliefs with regards to this form of deity, you can know from the internet. 

This temple is situated in Adhiyaman Kottai, Dharmapuri District, Tamil Naidu. It is about 155 kms or 3 hours drive from Bengaluru.
