About Kamakhya Temple (Place of Worship)

The Kamakhya Temple, that is considered one of the Shakti Peethams in India, is located on top of Neelachal Hill. This spot is the highest point of this city and draws good crowds, especially during the time of the Ambubachi festival. It is highly regarded by the followers of the ShaktiShakta sect and is linked with the legendary mother Goddess who is known to have killed Narakasur, the demon king, who supposedly, was the ruler of ancient Assam. It is also associated with the legend of Daksha Yagna and Shiva.

"An ancient Hindu shrine"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted May 7, 2016
Kamakhya Temple is a revered temple for visiting whenever you set foot in Guwahati. It is an ancient Hindu shrine where Ma Shakti is the presiding goddess. The Stone structure and the architecture are simply breathtaking and every step taken towards the garbha griha adds Shakti aka self confidence in your mind, body, heart and soul. Must see places to go and worship to fall back on our belief that Hindu mythology is not really a myth but the oldest religion in the world has these mind boggling and totally mystical experience giving destinations that has awed so many yugas and generations.

Early morning devotional at the Shakti Peeth is just relaxing and positive. Amazing place to be at. Very much approachable place by commercial or personal vehicles. Lots of restaurants in the vicinity. Scenic view of the guwahati city is adorable in late evenings.

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Aug 8, 2015
The Kamakhya temple is believed to have been built by the Demon King Narakasura atop the Nilachal hill and people have to climb a thousands steps reach it. It is one of the divine destinations in northeastern India of the cult. The Ambubachi mela is held here every year to honour the menstruation cycle of the mother earth. Thousands of tourists and pilgrims visit Kamakhya mandir every year. It is definitely a destination of the all people visiting northeastern India.

"A place where energy flows"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Oct 16, 2014
Kamakhya is a place where energy can be felt. It's no place for just a curious onlooker. It's a place for a curious devotee, for a truly religious person. With a Divine mindset I am sure you are going to feel the energy.
