One of the most famous places to go in Guwahati is the Kamakhya Temple. It is considered to be one of the most revered shrines of Goddess Shakti in India. There are four important Shakti Peethas in India and this is one of them. Kamakhya is considered to be an auspicious sect among the Tantrik sect of Hinduism.
This is a beautifully decorated temple with simple, elegant designs of flowers and there is a big dome as part of the temple’s construction that overlooks the Nilanchal Hills in the background. During the month of June, the celebrations of Ambubachi Festival are held here for 3 to 4 days and the temple is decorated beautifully for it.
