TEMPLES IN KAMRUP DISTRICT

This friendship between the two resulted in king Naraka becoming irreligious and presumptuous. Possessed by demonic ideas (asuram bhavamwadya), Naraka began to harass the Brahmanas and even neglected the goddess Kamakhya, who was greatly favoured by Visnu.

To add to his misfortune, the sage Vasistha visited Kamarupa and wished to worship the goddess Kamakhya. Naraka refused permit to Vasistha to go to Kamakhya temple whereupon the sage cursed Naraka saying that he would be slam by his father Visnu and that the goddess Kamakhya would remain hidden during the short duration of his life.
