TAMRESVARI

The Tamresvari temple commanded respect from a majority of people and counted amongst its votaries all the hill tribes in the vicinity, Ahoms and the Hindus of Assam. Instances are not wanting to show that this sacred shrine was frequently visited by pilgrims from regions far more remote including Tibet and China, who brought offerings to the great goddess.

The temple of Tamresvari is one of the oldest and the most important temples of this region. It now stands in a ruined state in the over-grown jungle about seven miles from Sadiya. The temple is described "as a small stone building, nearly square, but without cement, the stone joined by iron pins not clamped. The roof was of copper, but it has fallen in….. The interior is eight feet square. The whole is enclosed within a brick wall, 130 feet by 200 feet. "
