Umananda Temple - Review
Umananda Temple is a Shiva Temple built in Guwahati in 1594, by the Ahom King of Assam. Located on the Peacock Island in the centre of river Brahmaputra, this alluring abode of lord Shiva is one of the finest of its kind and is a favourite destination for worshippers and believers.
An enjoyable ferry ride will take you to this temple and the structure of the temple is a beauty in itself. The inherited rock-cut figures inhabiting the structure are a unique example of Assamese craftsmanship. The representation of Shiva, Surya, Ganesh, Devi and 10 avatars of Lord Vishnu are worth observing. The main shrine can be reached by a flight of steps and the temple is worth a visit when in Guwahati.

Umananda Temple, Guwahati Reviews
Umananda might be a temple place but it is also a great place to go for hangout with friends specially if you're in need of a break. You can sit at the rocks and breathe the soft and cool breeze of the river. The abundant presence of the trees makes the place even more beautiful. You can sit at the rocks and hear the current of the water and glaze at the surrounding areas where it used to have a picnic spot. I'm not sure whether it'll still exist or not as each and every year the land is being swept away by the high current. If you're a religious person it's a good place to visit. If you're an Explorer it's an awesome idea to visit a small island. You can enjoy the view of dolphins swimming if you're animal lover. If you're Hydrophobic then I'll highly recommend not to visit during monsoon. Visit it only during winter as tge water level is low and the current is much stable at these season. I visit the place more than 3 times for its scenic beauty, charm and its features.
A move place if you want to do some hiking and prefer boating. They have a species of monkey which is supposedly in danger and is of good friendly nature. Temple premise is clean and gives a good view of brampatura
Good place to visit. Travel through boat through Brahmaputra make the journey adventurous. Overall the place is great for visit and recommended place to visit if you are visiting Guwahati. Take only government boat as private boat can overcharge you. The place of boarding for government and private are different. Overall great except the boat travelling as boat is overloaded and river current is dangerous here.
What is said about this temple is less if you have to see the beauty of its beauty, then you should come here and believe that you will feel very peaceful after coming here, the temple on the beach in the middle of the river Very beautiful, very beautiful, believe that God is dwelling here and in truth it is
The place is unique and far from city. Boat ride through the Brahmaputra river is awesome. But be aware of fraudsters running private ferry ride. The charges are heavy to the tune of 250 rs for round trip. Go for the govt ferry service which is available at a dirt cheap rate of 20rs for the round trip.
