Places to visit
: Umananda Temple is situated on Peacock Island, which is situated on the Brahmaputra River. This tranquil place of worship is dedicated to and named after Lord Shiva. "Umananda" is derived from two Hindi words: "Uma," another name for Lord Shiva's wife, and "Ananda," which indicates bliss. Peacock Island is one of the tiniest inhabited islands in the world, as well as one of the most picturesque. The temple's surroundings, as well as the island's beautiful yet understated beauty, make it a refuge for nature enthusiasts. The temple is located on the crest of a hill known as Bhasmakala or Bhasmakuta. King Gadadhar Singha constructed the island in 1694 A.D. It was, however, devastated by an earthquake in 1897 and rebuilt by a wealthy local merchant. A lovely Umananda temple was built by skillful Assamese craftsmen. Aside from Lord Shiva, the shrines house the idols of ten additional Hindu gods.
: Kamakhya Temple is one of India's most respected Shakti sanctuaries. According to Hindu texts, there are four significant Shakti Peethas (temples with the highest powers of divinity) in the country, and Kamakhya Temple is one of them. The Kamakhya Temple honors the ability of women to bear children and is considered particularly auspicious by Hindus of the Tantrik sect. It was erected and rebuilt several times between the eighth and seventeenth centuries and is a sight to behold. The Kamakhya temple's main entrance is exquisitely designed, with basic yet lovely sculptures adorned with bright flowers.
Umananda Island, the world's smallest river island, is a location full of legends, a place where man and nature coexist in peace and calm. Umananda Island is located in the midst of the huge Brahmaputra River, which flows through the heart of Guwahati. Human presence has not yet devastated an island with many mythologies linked with it. It was dubbed Peacock Island by British colonists who were inspired by its shape. The island is home to a particularly uncommon and endangered species known as Golden Langurs, which are held in high regard by the Himalayans. According to tradition, it is the same location where Lord Kamdev (Lord of Love) was burned to ashes by Lord Shiva's third eye when the latter attempted to break his meditation, thus giving it its alternate name, Bhasmchal.
