The original temple is believed to have been built by a king named Bhadrasen. The current temple structure was built over the remains of the older temple. According to the local beliefs, after the Maratha defeat in the Third Battle of Panipat, Mahadaji Shinde prayed to the deity for victory in his campaign. After a successful campaign that led to the rise of Maratha power, he carried out restoration of the temple.
The temple is built in Maratha style of architecture with the exterior wall resembling a fortress.The shrine inside the walls has a pyramid shaped shikhara at the top. The vehicle of Kal Bhairav is a dog, and there is life-like statue of the one outside the sanctum. The deity's image is a face in form of a rock layered with vermilion. The deity's head is adorned with a Maratha-style pagri. There is a huge multilayered lamp in front of the sanctum
