It is believed Ketu puts on tremendous effect on human life. It brings both positive and negative effects. When Ketu is in favour it brings prosperity to man’s life. It increases wisdom and good health. When Ketu is not in favour it brings sudden loss, mental trauma, unnecessary depression and anxiety.

He will have all Weapons in Hands. he is Chief Security of Lord Shiva - Protecting all Temples, Sthalangal. religious Places, Wholw universe from Evil effects. He is also known as Kshethra Paalakar.
Even now in most old Temples there is a practice of Keeping keys (after locking sannathis in Temples) at the feet of Bhairavar for few minutes and take back before leaving. The concept is Bhairava is the real Protector for the Temples from Thieves eventhough we are locking. Siince he is the Security has Dog as his Vahanam. Dog is said to be Vedic Amsam.
Bruhath jathakam says Bhairava is the amsam of Human Life. One who worships KaalaBhairava  will have no Death Fear. Horospically/Astrologically 12 raasis are the 12 parts of Bhairavar. Mesham - Head,Rishabam-Mouth, Mithunam - Two Hands,Katakam-Chest,Simmam-Stomach,Kanni- Hip,Thulaam-Buttocks,Vrichikam-Genitals,Thanusu-Laps,Makaram- Knee,Kumbam- Legs,Meenam- Feet. This convey that worshipping Bhairava will remove all our Body related health problems.
The Whole Universe is under the Control of Kaal & the Kaal is controlled by Bhairavar. Hence Kala bhiravar worship will remove all Problems by  Nine Planets, Grahams Etc. Even fate is said to be " Kaalam" or Neram" in Tamil - Both controlled by Kaala Bhiairavar.

    Lord Saneeswarar is the younger son of Surya Devan.and Yamadarmar is the Elder one. Since Saneswarar got Punished by various Gods for catching them & also punished by Yamadarmar - Yamadramar frequently used to  ridicule Shaneeswar and being younger one Shaneeswar was teased frequently. When Shaneeswar , prayed to his Mother Saayaa devi, She instructed Shaneeswar to Pray to Bhairavar and he will guide him. After Worshipping Bhairavar and got his blessings Shaneeswar became Powerful Planet of Nine Planets able to Catch anybody including Devas. Even though Sun is superiormost, Saneeswar is the most feared Planet fpr its neutrality in giving retaliations to our Sins. Hence Devotees who are affected by Sani Dosham can worship Bhairavar simultaneously and get their problems solved.
Bhairava in Sanskrit means " Bhayam" timidness which will be removed if Bhairavar is worshipped.

  There are many puranas about Bhairava's Birth. 
 1- When Dhakshayini Fell in Yagakund of Yagam performed by his father Dakshan because Dakshan performing Yagam insulting Shivs husband of Dakshayini, She was Charred and Shiva became wild and did Ruthra Thandavam holding her Body in his Hands.Since it will destroy the whole universe including Deva Lokams, Vishnu using his Chakrayutha made Dakshayini Body into 64 pieces The Places where 64 Pieces fell in the Earth are even now known as Shakthi Peetams. 
2- In the Earlier Days Brahman was with 5 Heads. at that time Brahman was doing atrocities with 5 Head and to remove his headweight&self proudness Shiva created Bhairava. Bhairava with his small finger left hand Picked Brahmas fifth head. Even now we can see in ancient Temples Bhairava will have a Picked Headin his left Hand Small Finger.
3- Asuran by name Andhakaasuran had given problems to Devars & insulting them to a great extent.Since he got Boons from Shiva- Bhairava made war with him and destroyed the Asurans. It is also said that Prathyankara Devi accompanied Bhairavar in the War desroying Asurans. Prathyankara Devi is also considered as Wife of Bhairavar.During the War with Anthakasuran - Eight Bhairavars appeared in Eight Directions to make a final war in destroying Asuras. Since Devars happy with Death of Anthakaasuran have given Eight Devis to the Ashta Bhairavars.

Bhairavar is also worshipped by Budhdhists/Jainist etc., as Bhairavar in the same Roopam/name.

In olden days Bhairaagees are considered to be the worshippers of Bhairavar. Since Bhairavar main place is Cremation & He is Controlling PrethaLokham,Paisaasam,Bhootha Lokam,Baathaala,Vethaala, Crowds and Other SatanicElements existing in Earth - Bhairaagees used to stay in Cremation Grounds & told as canibals.
Bhairavar Is controlling Yanthram,Thanthram,& He can remove Pilli - Soonyam- Yeval.

Place where Dasaratha made Puthra Kameshti Yagam & got Child

Sri Putharakameshtiswarar Temple:

This temple is in Arani Town which is about 41 kms from Vellore, 58 kms from Thiruvanna malai, and 71 kms from Kancheepuram.

The main Raja Gopuram is of three tiers.

Here in front of the temple we see a big banyan tree under which Nagars are installed.

There is a small sanctum in which we see King Dasaradha idol facing the main entrance of the temple. The Siva Lingam here was installed and worshiped by King Dasaradha. Here King Dasaradha is seen with Kamandalam and Rudraksha in his hand like a muni as he was seen during the time of yagam.

As we enter inside the temple we see Dwajasthambam.

Nandi is seen in a small mandapam in front of the Dwajasthambam.

Sthala Vruksham is Pavazha malli and Pushkarani is Kamandala River.

Main Deity is Sri Putharakameshtiswarar in Lingam form under Adisheshan with nine heads, and his consort known as Periya Nayaki Amman seen in separate sanctum with separate Dwajasthambam. Urchavar in this temple is Somaskandar.

As we go around the prakaram we see a separate sanctum for Lord Murugan with his consorts Sri Valli and Devani.

Lord Gopala Krishnan is seen in separate sanctum with his consorts Bama and Rukmani.

Vinayakar and Dakshina Moorthy is seen here as koshta deivam in Lord Siva sanctum.

Other deities seen in the temple are Swarna Vinayakar, Pancha Lingam with consorts, Ashtotra Lingam, Kali and Veerabadharar, 63 Nayanmars, Kala Bairavar, Saneeswarar and Sooryan.

Anjaneyar is seen in front of Vinayakar with Sanku and Chakkram in his hand which is something unique.

Sthala Purana: King Dasaradha, approached his Guru Vashistar, and requested him to guide him with proper worship to be blessed with child. Vasishta Muni asked King Dasaradha to worship Lord Siva in this Darmaranya Kshteram to be blessed with Child.

King Dasaradha installed a Siva Lingam in this place and performed Puthrakameshti yagam under the guidance of Rishyasringa Muni. Hence Lord Siva is known as Puthrakameshti Eswarar. King was blessed with four sons.

Person who has Naga Dosha and Putra Dosha perform Putra kameshti yagam and install Nagar under the Banayan Tree seen out side the temple
 Located at 1km from Arani bus stand, this is a special parihara sthalam for child birth. King Dasarathar got Sri Ramar as his son only after conducting Puthra Kameshti yagna in 11 places and this is the first and prime one of those. There is a shrine for Dhasarathar here.

Every year, on the full moon day of the tamil month Aani,  the temple conducts Puthra kamesti yagam and any couple can participate freely. If you want to do it on other days, it is better to do it on the star birthday or any other day suggested by a good astrologer and the expenses would be around Rs 7500.
