REMAINING OF OTHER IMPORTANT TEMPLES

In addition to Siva Lingas, the Sri Surya Pahar remains include many rock-cut figures of artistic merit. Of the many images mention may be made of Durga, Siva and Manasa. The image of Manasa goddess, also identified as Durga by some, is a twelve-armed deity cut out of a single rock. She holds weapons of different kinds in each of her hands. She is standing on a lotus with seven snakes spreading their hoods like a canopy over her head.’ This is perhaps ‘the singular instance of a 12-armed goddess hitherto discovered in Assam.’

On the hill is a modern shrine, the walls of which are built of the old bricks, plastered with mud and with the roof of corrugated iron-sheets. The shrine contains a circular stone tablet measuring four and a half feet in circumference. On this stone tablet are engraved the images of various planetary gods with the figure of Surya.
