Superb place and very high spiritual energy revolving around this place... The interesting part is when u reach there its a very neat, nice n clean temple.. Though the people working in the temple push u to give money in donation way which is not good buy rest of things are nice...
It's a lovely place.The area is very peaceful but outside of temple is crowded. Kamakhya Temple is a worship place for Hindus.Everybody loves to visit the Temple. People's comes from different states and many foreigners also visits the place.
Very peaceful place and feeling of cosmic energy. Cleanliness and decoration of temple will observed everywhere. Night vision of temple is awesome. Hotels, folding & lodging are easily available at 10-20 Metre distance from the temple.
We felt very auspicious to be here. Temple timings are fixed and must reach before the time to get the dharshan without any trouble. One of the must visit places at guwahati. This is the oldest temple and people believe this as the most powerful and the wishes gets fulfilled if one prays here with their whole hearted spirit. Buses and cabs are available from top and below the hill to get to the temple.
Temple is good. Many pandits available inside are looking money minded. Dont know why they behave like that. They have only 500 rupees ticket for VIP entry. Otherwise you can go only by general which is always rush or else go by defense ticket (50 rupees).
