Situtated at West Guwahati, also known as Kamrup Kamakhya is one of the Old 51 Shakti Piths as per Hindu religion. It is one of the scenic-ly placed temples overlooking the Brahmaputra & very easy to reach via app based cabs but nauseous for those who dont like mountain roads or heights.. Temple has a temporary parking so not much... More

Although we had to wait for an hour to get a 'darshan' it was well organised by the temple which maintained a strict discipline in letting people in batches. The priests at the inner sanctum are very helpful and inform you of the significance of... More

Once in Guwahati, the Kamakhya Temple is a must visit. Nestled atop a hill with picturesque views, it is believed to be a very powerful temple with massive crowds thronging the temple for darshan. I visited it during the lunch hour, so the main temple was closed and it was less crowded. Once atop the hill, you will see a... More

We kept this visit at the last day of our visit to Assam. It was a mistake;should have gone there on day 1. We expected to buy the VIP ticket the queue for which is much shorter but didn't know that the counter closes early. We had a flight in some time so couldn't reach the main temple. However we...

Good adventurous temple. To go in a cave and visit a temple is something to look out for. Located in the city.

It is one of the oldest of the 51 Shakti Pithas. The notoriety of Pandas are famous. Long queue is added worry. Total commercial place. Nobody is concerned about surrounding environments. Rampant infrastructure development can be seen instead of maintaining the natural beauty.
