TEMPLES IN KAMRUP DISTRICT

The Yogini Tantra gives an account of the origin of the Visnu image in the Manikuta. King Indradyumna of Orissa dreamt a dream at night that a big nameless tree would come floating by the sea shore. He was to take an axe and cut it into seven pieces in the morning- He did so and of the seven pieces, two were brought over to Kamarupa. With one piece the Hayagriva. Image was made and the other the Fish-god named Madhava.

The Manikuta is considered holy by the Buddhists of Tibet and even now Buddhists of the neighbouring Bhutan hills come own in cold season and do worship the god whom they regard as Mahamuni Buddha. Waddell mentions in his work Lamaism that there is a tradition in Tibet that Buddha had his parinirvana in Kamarupa. But the Kalika Purana and Yogini Tantra make several references to Manikuta.
