Kamakhya Temple, Guwahati Reviews

  • This is really a beautiful place on top of Kamakhya hill. You will enjoy the ride to the hill top. One thing that caught my eye is this temple is very clean. Apart from the main Kamakhya temple, there are several other small temples scattered throughout the hill. Apart from physical strength, you have to spare minimum two days if you plan to visit all the temples spread across the hill pockets.

  • Highest rated temple in Greater North east. And indeed it is. You will feel the atmos of this place once you are here. The scenic Beauty of this place is just above all. The vibe of positivity drives you crazy. And you get a new mark in your life. Don't know how to express this positivity. Just be here. Feel it by yourself. 💐💐👍👌

  • 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...

  • No words to describe about this place Just go and try to spend the time as much as possible, before u go if possible learn some basic practices about goddess and do more and more and more there It gives u everything undoubtedly, Mostly here i respect some one closer too my unconscious mind Goddess kamakhya get me to there All of a sudden she sent her child mister another name of KRISHNA........ My blessings to him for a complete healthy and happy and soulful life.....

  • One of the most popular spiritual place in India. This temple is situated in guwahati and very far from guwahati railway station. It is around nine to ten kilometres from bus stand. You can get bus which takes twenty rupees and if you want to go by reserved taxi, it will take more than two hundred rupees, as they told me while I went there.
