  • 1.The main temple is just beautiful and clean along with rest of the 10 other temples spread in the mountain. 2.The best thing is, you will hardly find those notorious Pandas here so no need to worry. Get your pooja materials from the stalls on the way and do the rest of the stuff yourself no mediator needed here. 3. The no of visiting devotees may increase by evening so afternoon would be a good choice.

  • Its a wonderful place. The temple is one of the oldest and mysterious place in India. You can feel a peace. But the queue for visit the ancient place is too lengthy. It may take 6 to 8 hrs. It is the general line timing. But there is a VIP line, which is quite faster than the general queue. But for the VIP you have to pay 500 or more than 500. The pass for the VIP is given from the temple. But to take the pass you have to go to the temple approx 6:30 am to 7:00 am. But the temple is fantastic.

  • This temple is basically the identity of Guwahati. One of the most popular tourist attraction for tourists all over the World. Devotees and tourist often visit the temple and everybody is allowed too. Cameras are allowed inside the main premise, the only restriction is the Cave temple where no kinds of camera can be used. This place is not only for devotees, people who love to see be in peaceful and a beautiful place then this is a great option, I recommend it!
