first timers can be fleeced by unsuspecting friendly priests who offer to take you through a short cut to see the deity above the cave. Its actually free if you walk in yourself. The queues do get long so getting there early is the trick.

Like most of the religious places, you will find it crowded most of the time. The temple is open from sunrise to sunset, with a break from 1300 hrs to 1430 hrs. Be prepared to spend at least 3-4 hrs if you are in the regular queue, or at least an hour if you purchase a special pass costing 500/-... More

Kamakhya Temple is one of the powerful Shakti peetas. Lord Sati's female organ had fallen at the temple site and initial temple here is believed to have been built by Kama Deva. Temple was renovated and built several times by the King who ruled Guwahati in the past. This temple doesn't have any idol in the Garbha Griha. There is... More

This temple is really old and holds a mythological importance however please kill animals here as an offering to the goddess. Not many people can bear it. No one takes care of birds as well. I found a dead pigeon there being protected by another pigeon

Visited this place in May 2017. Nice temple on top of hill. It's one of the shaktipeeth as per Hindu mythology. But it takes quite a lot of time to have darshan. There is no idol in this temple.
