TEMPLES IN KAMRUP DISTRICT

The Bauddha Gan-O-Doha and the Haragauri - Samvada mention it as Kamru.

The Kalika Purana and the Yogi Tantra, both connected with the religious history and geography of mediaeval Assam, describe the country as Kamarupa. The name Kamarupa according to the legends of these texts is associated with Kamadeva, The god of love. It is here that Kama was sent by the gods to put an end to Siva's mourning after the death of his consort and to awaken in him again the passion of creation. He was burnt to ashes at the angry glance of the great god  but later recovered his original form (rupa): s  the name Kamarupa.
