Temple built by King Banasur, who sought Shiva's help to fight against Krishna's son Pradyumna, is situated at the heart of Tezpur Town. It is claimed to be one of the biggest Shivaling in India.

The Mahabhairav temple is a historic temple built during the mythical reign of king Banasur of Tezpur who sought Shiva's help to fight against Krishna's son Pradyumna in the battle of Sonitpur. The original stone structure was unfortunately destroyed during the 1897 Assam earthquake.
