Crossroads in World Folktales, Folklore, Literature, and Poetry


Bhairava, Nepal. Bhairava is an older version of the god Shiva, and guards the crossroads at the outskirts of villages.

We envision this section to be an ever-growing collection of resources for the study of how crossroads have appeared in stories from the most ancient of times to today’s mythologies. If you have a story you think we should share, please drop us a line at
