Kamakhya Temple Reviews & Ratings
Hindu temple on the mountain. The way to reach here is nice view; you view see a landscape of Guwahati and village on the top of mountain. But think about whom is car sick, prepare the medicine is best way.
Loved it. It is one of the best temples. It is also one of the oldest temples. it is more than 800 years old or might be even older than 800 years. Very delicate and artistic designs are made on the walls.
Karnak Temple Big. Bold. Massively ambitious. This was Ancient Egypt’s grandest temple, covering over 2 sq km, large enough to contain 20 cathedrals. A forest of colossal papyrus-shaped columns in the main hall is most spectacular. Truly impressive 👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾
Spirituality and the presence of Goddess. No corruption. Loved it. Will go again. Line starts from 5 am . Darshan starts from 8am sharp.
The place is considered very sacred and it's really nice to visit but it takes a lot of patience and time to stay in queue and have a glimpse of inside view of temple. But you can pay ₹500 to have VIP access and reduce the waiting time for the same.
