Navagraha Temple, Guwahati Reviews
There is a fairly clean temple and everything here is very good. The priests here are very nice that you will not get money. Whenever you get an opportunity to come here you can feel assured that there are many temples in Guwahati but it is one of them The temple is worshiped here, the Navagraha is worshiped there and lots
Temple of the seven planets, Yes it is! If science did discover the solar system long ago, this temple has been for the worshippers no less than those era. Come and find the temple’s mythological blend with astrology and astronomy. 500 metres away from the city rush with 100m elevation approx., nice viewpoint. Recommended for an early morning walk.
Mesmerizing beauty. Away from the rush of city. Come and enjoy the sunset here
One of the oldest astrological place. There are Nine Plannets are together so the temple called as Nabagraha. Old name of the city Pragjyotishpur derived from the word Prak-Pre/past, Jyotish- astrology, pur-Nagar . Best time to visit - for Tourists - 6am to 6pm. Others- 7am to 4pm. Best day to visit - Tuesday and Saturday. Best month to visit - mid of February (13-16) Graha puja. Best place to visit with your friends and family. You can enjoy the viewings of whole city from the temple . you have to take care of your Bags and other things , because monkeys are all around. They might be attack you or bite your family members.so be careful and always try to maintain distance.
This is one of the most beautiful place I visited. I visited here when I was in Guwahati for 15 days tour. I love the way of the monk of this Temple talk very gently. It is a very peaceful place and this place shows the beauty of Assam. This place is not so big and not so small but I am sure if you visit hair you will enjoy the beauty of mountains and such a religious place.
