An ancient Hindu shrine

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.

Awesome place for just relaxing

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.

A place where energy flows

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.
