As per the Hindu Religion, the legend of Khatu Shyam Ji begins with the Mahabharat. He was earlier known as Barbarika, the Grand son of powerful, Brave, Mace - Holder(Gadadhari) Bhima and son of Ghatotkacha and Snake-Girl Morvi. He learnt the art of warfare from his mother and Shree Krishna. He pleaded Lord Shiva,by his austerity and got the three infalliable arrowas(Teen Baan). Hence, Barbarika got another appellation 'Teen Baan Dhari', the 'Bearer of Three Arrows'.
It was the period,when the battle between the Pandavas and Kauravas became imminent. As soon as, he came to know about the battle,he felt the urge to participate in the battle. He visited to his mother for permission and blessings where he promised that he would join the side which would be defeated in the battle. Hence, he is known as the 'Hare Ka Sahara' (Support of the Defeated).
As Soon as, Barbarika reached into the Mahabharat Battle, Shree Krishna stopped him to ask whom would he join. Barbarika replied that he would join the side whichever is week. Shree Krishna knew the consequences of the words of Barbarika to his mother. He was aware of the phenomenal powers of Barbarika who had the caliberity of destroying opponent's whole army, by a single arrow.
Shree Krishna was well awared of the fact that Kauravas would lose , and if Barbarika would support the week side,Kauravas would win the battle.Hence,Krishna avoided his participation in the war. He disguised as a brahmin and asked Barbarika's head in charity. Barbarika sniffed Krishna's intent and requested the brahmin to disclose his real identity.
Krishna came into his real apperance and explained to him the reason of asking his head for the worship of battlefield by sacrificing the head of the bravest Kshatriya . Barbarika disclosed his great desire to Krishna to view the forthcoming battle. Shree Krishna granted his wish to fulfill and placed his head on the top of a hill.
After watching the whole battle, victorious Pandavas asked Barbarika's head who was responsible for their victory. Barbarika's head replied that it was Shree Krishna who was alone responsible for Pandava's Victory in Mahabharat Battle.
Shree Krishna being pleased with his great sacrifice,gave Barbarika blessing that he would be known as Shyam' in Kaliyuga and called Shree Khatu Shyam as well. Devotees who pray and visit Khatu Shyam Temple heartily are blessed with happiness and prosperity in their lives.
