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.

Abode beauty and serenity, located in an isolated island on the waves of Brahmaputra, accessible by only by a steamer ride. Nature, divinity and beauty perfectly blend with each other in this place. You get to enjoy boat ride on the mighty Brahmaputra River. I loved the boat ride and the place more than the temples.
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.
Umananda temple is situated in Peacock island, in the midst of Brahmaputra river. Its the smallest river island in the world as well. Though its a religious place, its a tourist attraction being the smallest river island.It occupies a very smaller area but one can enjoy the scenic beauty sitting there on the rocky island.
It is holy temple located in the middle of Brahmaputra River and reached by a various ferries but gov. Ferry will be the best option for cheaper rates from umananda ghat. Nice place I love it very much due to Lord SHIVA PARVATI & GANESHA and its surrounding beauty gives a peace. Aware of fraud ferries.
It's a historic temple, go with your family, parent and grandparents. They will enjoy this. Also you can enjoy the scenic beauty of bramhaputra river.
