When Bhairavnath wanted to catch the girl, then the mother knew her treachery. Mother changed in air form and flew towards Tricolor Mountain.

Bhairavnath also followed them. It is believed that Hanuman was also Pawanpuranta to protect her mother.

Mother warned Bhairavnath and asked to go back. Still, he did not believe it. Mother went inside the cave. Then to guard Mother Hanuman fought with Bhairav outside the cave.

Bhairav did not give up even when Veer Hanuman began to falter, then Mata Vaishnavi took the form of Mahakali and killed Bhairavnath. Bhairavnath's head was dropped in the Bhairav Valley of Trikute Mountain, 8 km from Cuttack Bhawan. The place is known as the temple of Bhaironath. The place where Maa Vaishno Devi slaughtered Bhairavnath was famous as the sacred cave or the building.

Mata Vaishno Devi knew that the main intention of Bhairav was to get salvation after attacking them, not only gave Bhairav freedom from the cycle of rebirth but giving it a boon, said that my philosophy would not be considered as complete Until a devotee will not see you after me. According to the same belief, even after seeing the devotees of Vaishno Devi, devotees go to the temple of Bhairavnath on a steep climb up to 8 km. Meanwhile, Vaishno Devi assumed the shape of a rock with three bodies (head) and became meditative forever.

Meanwhile, Pandit Shridhar became impatient.
