Umananda Temple, Guwahati Reviews

  • Atop the Peacock island located in the middle of river Brahmaputra, this Shiva temple offers you much more than just a place of worship. A walk around the temple offers amazing views of the city as well as the river. The ferry ride from the island at the time of sunset is mesmerizing! And you may just see a golden langur (one of the most endangered species), if you are lucky enough (which I wasn't).

  • It is situated in a small island of Bhramaputra river. Very old temple. There is a ferry to reach this temple. If we can afford can hire a private boat. Government ferry cost one way is 3 rupees

  • Temple is located on the middle of Brahmaputra river. Can reach there with private boat services as well as government boat services.but better to choose government if u want to save money. Can roam around the island. Have a fun with shopping, eating and seeing evening sunset..

  • A small temple located on an Island in the middle of the mighty Brahmaputra River.We can reach the temple through Govt Ferry and i believe Private ones as well which are very exorbitant.The 5 minute cruise is definitely the highlight of the trip. Temple itself is good, my only issue is that the priest make it very clear that we are expected to make some donation to them. We did not see any monkeys around though!

  • It is middle of Brahmaputra....You need to visit there by boat... govt boat is most safer than others.beautiful place ...Most peace full one
