Goddess Parvaty wanted to know about various Shiv Lings and deities at several places in Kashi and Lord Shiva was pleased to narrate such deities (Kashi Khand, Chapter 97).

In the process, the Lord mentions one Kaleshwar who generates faith in the minds of the devotees who merely look at the Shiv Ling.
Devotees who worship Kaleshwar will have purity of mind and thoughts. A person who has pure thoughts will not have fear of anything in life.
