TEMPLES IN KAMRUP DISTRICT

HAJO

Introduction

Hajo, a village in Kamrup district, is about fourteen miles to the northwest of Gauhati. It was a great centre of culture and learning . It served as the camp of the Mohammadans during there in vasions of Assam and was included in the Koc king- dom. It is now one of the important centres of Community Development. There is an excellent bus service to Hajo fromGauhati. There are no good hotels or rest-house at Hajo and therefore the visitor has to halt at Gauhati itself.

There are two temples at Hajo, the Haya- griva Madhava temple and theKedaresvara temple, of which the temple of Hayagriva Madhava figures more prominently in the religi6us history of Assam. The existence of this temple attests to the prevalence of Vaisnavism in Kamarupa.
