Kala Bhairavashtami and Kala Bhairava Jayanti is on November 25. Lord Kala Bhairava is also known as Kshetrapalaka, the guardian of the temple. In honor of this, keys to the temple are ceremonially submitted to Lord Kala Bhairava at temple closing time and are received from him at opening time. There's a shrine for Lord Kaala Bhairava in most Siva temples. The Bhairava shrine in the Arunachala temple (Tiruvannamalai) is very special. The Kala Bhairava temple in Kasi (Benares) is a must see for Bhairava devotees. Lord Bhairav has the knowledge of tantra-mantra and is himself a Rudra.
To get the protection shakti that is necessary for a peaceful life amidst the violence, anger and hatred that have become so common, the worship of Lords Kala Bhairava, Sarabeswara and Amruta Mrityunjaya is very important. The worship of Kala Bhairava is very important for those living in foreign countries. The vahana (vehicle) of Lord Kaala Bhairava is the dog. Feeding and taking care of dogs is another way of showing our devotion to Lord Kaala Bhairava. Lord Kaala Bhairava is also the guardian of travellers.
The Siddhas advise us that before embarking on a journey, especially one that involves travel during the night, we should make a garland of cashew nuts and decorate Lord Kala Bhairava with it. We should light jothi lamps in His honor and request His protection during our travel.
