  GAUWAHATI - KAMAKYA TEMPLE

Renowned as Pragjyotishpur and gate way to Assam, this famous city played a domant role in the past. Its legends date back to Dwaparayuga, and as one of the Sakti-peethas, its sacrosanct glory defies description. Its location and surroundings too are quite enchanting as it unfolds an exciting panorama of paddy fields; dense rain-fed forests and over flowing Brahmaputra; vast tea gardens along hill slopes and hoary temples. All in their majesty. It is situated on the southern bank of Brahmaputa and has been a great centre of tearing since time immemorial.

It owes its glory to the numerous temples built for almost all faiths such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity and Islam too. Creditable it is that all these faiths are co-existing in harmony and progressing without hindrance. Among the Hindu temples, Kamakhya temple occupies the first place. According to legends, it is here Mother Sati's yoni-reproductive organ fell, when Lord Maha Vishnu cut her body dexterously. It is a Mahasakti-peetha visited by Sakteyas and Saivates throughout the year. Agamic puja is offered daily and periodical festivals are conducted with colour and pegeantry of high order. The temple resembles a dome with Kalasa on the top. There is a big temple Pushkarini in its front provided with a flight of broad steps.

It lies Gauhati, the Capital of modes of transport Assam, accessible by all modes of transport.
