The Bhairabkunda is not only the meeting place of geographical
borders but it is also for the river Jia Dhansiri, Bhairavi
The meeting point of rivers looks like a ‘Kunda’

pace after the violent democracy support movement started
in the late eighties in Bhutan. Although, a very development
faces a halt in the area a new dawn is expected after the
creation of BTAD. The BTAD authority has taken interest
to develop this area. The people prominently considered
it as a suitable picnic spot for the new year.
The Hindu devotees visit the place in ‘Makar Sankranti’
where they take bath in the meeting point of three rivers
and offer pujas in the Shiva temple.
According to proverbial tales there was a kunda where the
devotees used to offer pujas. The fishes in this kunda used
to take the rice thrown by the sacred devotees and sprinkle
the holy water for peace while they used to avoid impure
people. In another tale, it is said that the extreme devotees
of shiva- The Bodos used to pry God performing Kherai dances
in the ancient ages. The God realizes himself among the
devotees and all the musical instruments were gathered in
a house of Deuri (worshipper).
Once, the house ablazed and all the musical instruments
were disappeared. ‘Bhim of Panch Pandavas too was
