TEMPLES IN KAMRUP DISTRICT

Ugra Tara was worshipped according to Varna cara rites. This was because of a curse given to her by sage Vasistha. The story goes that Yama lodged a complaint with Brahma saying that all those who lived in Kamarupa went to heaven be cause of the sacredness of the place and nobody went to his realm. Brahma, in turn, carried this complaint to Visnu and together they met Siva and told him about the horrid state of affairs in the land of Kamarupa.

Siva agreed to look into the matter and there after ordered the hosts and goddess Ugra Tara to drive away all the people of Kamarupa. In the course of this drive, they laid their hands on sage Vasistha who was meditating on Siva on the Sandhyacala.
