You must visit this place on a bright sunny day to get the best ariel view of Guwahati city. You can spend quite time atop the hill. The view from the above is great. Many people visit this place to avoid the chaos of the city.

Located of a hill, the temple is quite large and has some nice ancient buildings, but moderns cage-like corridors have been added to accommodate the crowds of visitors. Interesting to witness animal sacrifices (people bring pigeons and goats).

this tempel is considered as a shatkti peeth. over crowded but organised. the staff were regularly cleaning the premises. to save time buy a ticket for 501 rs. ask some punda or your local contact to buy it beore as on sundays and holidays the ticket counter closes early. the temple is shut from 12.30 to 3 in the afternoon.
