I went to Kamakhya Temple this month with one of my friend. As I reside nearby (Maligaon,around 3 km from temple), It is easy for me to take a walk to the temple or hire a taxi (OLA/UBER/MyTaxi etc) at minimum fare. There is a footway, look like stairs which is named as Mekhela Ujuwa Path which I choose most... More

It is out standing place.The temple remain close in between 1 pm to 2:30 pm. So it is better to enter the temple in between 8 am because it is will 3 to 4 hours to complete the puja. Don't hire any Panda . Just stand in queue. The temple have superb arrangements to maintain the queue.

Had a holy visit to this temple with family. Was an interesting experience since man and domestic animals roam around in the same space. The shrine has become much better organized over the past few years but can still do better on the cleanliness front.

we reached there in the afternoon on a Saturday, but unluckily it was recess time and we had had to wait for nearly one and half hours before the queue started moving. We didn't face any problem as there was a sitting arrangement for the devotees. After the recess, it took another one and half hours to finally reach our... More

The trip to Kamakhya temple was a very different and powerful experience. Being a Hindu the mythological significance and importance is great to me. Extremely crowded with people from all across India once inside the temple sanctum sanctorum the atmosphere evokes an extremely powerful spiritual experience. There are temple pandas all around who assist for a fee the process of... More

For traveller coming to visit Assam and Meghalaya its they can make a quick darshan of Maa Kamakhya and then proceed to shillong or Kaziranga. Quick darshan of Maa Kamakhya takes about an hour or two at the max.

One of the most important shakti peeths on the Hindu pilgrimage trail. It is old and rich with stories and history, which is intriguing and you could read about it. Here's how the visit looked and felt. I visited Kamakhya temple when I had an afternoon off while at work in Guwahati. July afternoon, it had just started raining when... More
