GUWAHATI - UMANANDA SIVA MANDIR

This capital city of Assam State, besides housing the famous Kamakhya temple, dedicated to Makali, built on the Nilachala hill contains a Siva temple called Umananda temple. It is situated on a small hill in the peacock island of the holy river Brahmaputra. When the original temple was washed away by the floods of river Brahmaputra, a modern attractive structure with many pavilions for parivaradevatas, like Ganesh, Durga, Surya, Parvathi etc. was built by Rajeswar Gupta, a devout Saivate devotee. The sculptural adornments on the walls, and the curvilinear tower cast enchantment of the visitors. The Sivalinga in the garbha griha is quite attractive. This temple is popularly called as Negriting temple, besides Umananda Mandir too. It is visited by all Hindu devotees throughout the year. The annual Sivaratri festival draws thousands of bhaktas.

It lies near Guwahati, the state capital enjoying all facilities of transport.
