The head of the Aakash Bhairav was discovered in Kathmandu several hundred years ago. The head is now kept in a Hindu temple near Durbar Square in Kathmandu, where it is taken out once a year to be blessed by the Kumari, the living goddess who lives in the nearby Kumari Chowk.
In the common Kathmandu myth, he is the god who will always fight for the weak or the losing side. He is also known as King Yalamber of Kirat, Aju dya for Newars, Barbarik, grandson of Bhimsen.
