Ugratara Temple, Guwahati Reviews
Ugro Tara Temple is a temple dedicated to Tara (Devi) located in the western side of Jor Pukhury tanks in the heart of Guwahati city in the Lotaxil (Latasil) locality in Northeast India. The Ugratara Temple in Uzan Bazaar in the eastern part of Guwahati, Assam is an important Sakti shrine. Legend has it that the navel of Sati, first consort of Shiva, is related to this temple. Ugratara in Assam is generally identified with Tiksna-Kanta, Eka-Jata, etc., of the Buddhist pantheon. The present temple of Ugra Tara was built by Ahom King Siva Singha in 1725 AD who had excavated a tank three years before. The tank, known as Jorepukhuri, is situated to the east of the temple. The tank still exists, though the upper section of the temple was destroyed by a devastating earthquake. This was however rebuilt by a private citizen.
It has a long history attached to it. People believe that if u bring the water from the nearby pond(which is equally famous and revered) and offer it to Lord Shiva, His good graces will be yours. It has a beautiful campus. It also organises marriage ceremony. You can also feed the pigeons which I found was very calming.
I was surprised, when I visited for the 1st time. The temple is old and the worship of Ma Ugratara is even much much older. The temple reflects the traditional assamese style of temple architecture. The worship of Ma tara is connected to the pre-arian tradition of Tantric school of Hinduism. Therefore the place seem historically and religiously important. But the thing, which surprised me is a chorus song sang by the local women in the evening, in a vary charming rhythm and a tune quite unfamiliar to me, with some traditional instruments. I just got mesmerized to hear that incredible song. It has influences of north-eastern folk tune, bengali folk tune and bengali kirtan on it.
My Pleasure,I wish to be this lovely holy Shrine,
Nice and powerful temple. You should visit.
