  • 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.

  • Well managed crowd in a queue but waiting time is much more than 3 hours. The temple is too much polluted with dirt. The temple has nice city view from above. The temple is surrounded by many restaurants, rest rooms & hotels so there's no need to worry if you're getting late or trouble finding a place to stay or eat. The Pandas Inside The Temple Will Force And Asks To donate Money to mata at different places. Overall The Temple Is Nice. Also You Can See Many Pigeons, Snakes & goats inside the temple.

  • Living here in Assam I've been reading about the great kamakhya temple since my childhood..in books in movies etc...I've always want to see the temple for real... finally I get a chance and visited the place with one of my best friend...and man the place is beautiful...the place is too crowded always ...if you want to go inside you have to wait in line for a minimum of 5 hours ...so go as early as possible...due to that sole reason I didn't go inside...explored only the outside...maybe another time...but the little time I spend there ...despite all the haziness and crowd..I still found some sort of peace... Its a good place that helps to feel the blessings of god..

  • Heavily crowded temple with people coming from all parts of the country to seek blessings of Goddess Kamakhya. The ordinary queue has a minimum wait time of 5 hours or more with people starting to queue up as early as 3am-4am. There's however another queue for which one needs to pay ₹501/- in case one needs to do it without standing in long queues and wait for hours. There's also a separate queue for Defence personnel which has a waiting time of hardly an hour.

  • A very beautiful temple and one of the biggest and most famous in North East India. Devotees from many parts of the country come here to offer prayers. It's in the top of a small mountain in guwahati. Cabs are readily available from the main city to the temple. The road to the temple has great views of the city from the top. Many people walk all the way to the temple from the main entrance in the city
