The temple stands for Goddess Kamakhya and is popular among local folks as well as tourists. The environment is divine and you feel one more step closer to the God.

I went to Kamakhya Temple. The temple has a massive dome which overlooks the quaint Nilanchal Hills in the background. Visit this temple for a long due acquaintance with the Divine. It is great place to go.

1) It depends. During special days like "Ambubachi" or "Durga Puja" - the whole day is not enough. For other days 2-3 hours is sufficient. 2) During morning as early as possible. 3) I don't have any idea about VIP passes... More
