Located at very very beautiful place. The Temple is awesome. Only the guide there are not good, if you say them that you don't need them then they will behave very disrespectful to you.
Peaceful temple, nice location but the queue management is very poor. Persons buying 500 Rupees ticket and defense personal are allowed to access the vip queue whereas a normal guy had to take the general queue. Entry in the VIP queue is very fast compared to the general queue. It seems very unfair.
It was a very good temple but we had to wait for a long time. Also I am sorry to say but the priests were a bit mental. They were pushing us like anything.
Ancient temple with glorious history. Peace of mind. A place where you wait for many hours to see goddess kamakhya but did not feel tired. The place where you want to go again and again.
It's an amazing temple but free queue can take 5 hours. Temple is closed from 1 to 2. Suggest to but rupees 501 ticket if you can afford, it's far more convenient. Pandas often want money else you can't do puja properly. It's got a small museum too
