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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Temple on the island in the middle of the river Brahmaputra. The Overall experience was nice except that there was no fixed number of passengers on the boat. Out boat had some 100+ passengers and were really cramped. The temple has large rooms with almost no ventilation. It was so hot and humid and a lot of us were sitting outside the temple. I thought they could have maintained this temple a bit more and there was garbage from the shops throws directly in the water which was not at all a good sight specially when overall North East is much cleaner than most cities.

  • This temple in located on peacock island ,a small island in mighty Brahmaputra River. It was a nice experience to take a ferry to reach and feel the peace and experience the unforgettable scenery of this temple. A must visit place in guwahati. Caution. Take only govt ferry which charge only Rs 20/- ,there r many private ferry to loot you..Be aware...👍👍

  • Umananda Temple is on Peacock Island and it's world's smallest river island. This island named as Peacock but no peacock from the known past. Instead of peacock you'll find Monkeys here. It's a peaceful place and Hindu Temple is situated here. It's a nice place to spend time.
