“Temple darshan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2012

Took a VIP Darshan. The priests and authorities were very helpful, the temple was neat and facilities were good but the priests clearly solicited cash offerings and you got more blessings for that.

“When will we stop animal sacrifice (or Bali)?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012

The place is crowded and long queues as most religious sites in India. Did not enjoy the place much after seeing goats getting dragged to the butcher for sacrifice at the temple. Lets become rational and stop such cruelty to animals. Go vegetarian!

“Even Goddess is suffocating there!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

I visited this place for the 1st time 7 years ago and was dismayed at the state of one of the famous shrines in India. Dirty, No maintenance and some very rude and greedy preist (Panda) as they are known. This place attracts thousands of tourist evry year. Its high time Assam Government take measures to maintain a clean and peaceful environment in there.

“A gateway to Assam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

An awesome place for the worshiper of Mata-rani. Undoubtedly a gateway to Assam. Holy place Kamkhya is the best attraction of Assam for Hindus.
Pandas are quite co-operative. Total satisfaction of Darshan. No loot & no burglary in and around.
Want to visit again.
