The Kamakhya temple in guwhati

Its a wonderful place in guwhati on top of a hillock and the timing was so wonderful…

The Kamakhya and the adjoining temples have 64 stone-carved images of yoginis (female saints) and 18 Bhairavis (female saints who worship a different cult of sakthi or ferocious form of mother goddess). The findings of the field surveyors include still and video documentation covering the different features of the temple.

The Kamakhya temple atop the Nilachal hills was built in 1565 by Koch King Naranarayan on the ruins of the original which was destroyed by the invading army of Kalapahar.

This is the place where the famous Ambabuchi fair takes place colour with folklore and folk arts.
