TEMPLES IN KAMRUP DISTRICT

As mentioned before, the genital organ of Sati fell on the Nilachala. The mountain represented the body of Siva himself and when Sati’s genital organ fell on it the mountain turned blue. The goddess herself is called Kamakhya, because she came there secretly to satisfy her amour (kama) with Siva. Thus "the mountain became both a grave yard and a secret love-tryst of the goddess."

Kamarupa pitha (Kamakhya) is also known as Yonipitha.  Also:

Yonipitham kamagirau kamakhya tatra devata

Yatraste trigunatita raktapasanarupini

Yatraste madhavah saksadumanande-tha bhairavah

Sarvada vihareddevi tatra muktirna sarnsayah

Tatra sribhairavidevi tatra ca ksetradevata

Pracandacandika tatra matangi tripurambika

Vagala kamala tatra bhavanesi sadhumini.

(Pithanirmaya) 16.
