Navagraha Temple Reviews & Ratings
Ancient temple nearly 400 years old. Located on good elevation providing panoramic view of city. Temple and the premises needs good upkeep and maintenance. A high potential spot
I m a resident of this place and this place really calms your mind, when you feel low, just visit this temple and then go to the back side of the temple, when the wind from the mighty river Brahmaputra touches your body, its like it enters to your soul, You Will Feel Freshness
Situated on top of a hill. The pujaris charge money for rituals if you want to do darshan. Better attraction is after dusk, place just outside the temple. You can view a small part of guwahati at night time. Go with a friend for a leisurely talk while enjoying the view. Four stars!
Very beautiful place. Both the temple as well as the surrounding beauty of nature, it can be a great place for relaxation
This is an amazing place. You will definitely feel relief and peaceful here. Large number of monkeys are seen here.
