    Kamakhya Temple, Guwahati

    Location: Guwahati, Assam.

    Kamakhya temple is also known as a Shakti Peeth and it is located on the Nilachal Hill, Guwahati. It is the destination for Hindu worshipers and Tantriks. The Kamakhya complex cosist of 6 temples which were made in 1543 AD by Kamarupa. The basic meaning of Kamakhya is Shaki (Power), and the main festivals of temple are Maha Shiv Ratri and Durga Puja.

    I been there once and the experince was really nice, it is just a few minutes drive away from Guwahati city and situated at the hill top. While driving to Kamakhya there are number of points from where you can see entire city and dam too. I liked everything about this temple and I think its must visit temple for every hindu

    Here are some pics from my last trip to Kamakhya Temple
