You’ll be given a VIP entry, which is basically a skip-the-line pass that’ll let you attend the darshan in one hour instead of queueing for the whole day. Maa Kamakhya Temple is dedicated to the mother goddess Kamakhya, who’s an important goddess of Shakta Tantric. It is built at Nilacal hills and is one of the oldest and most revered temples where Tantric practices are still held. The annual festival Ambubachi Mela is held every year here, celebrating the menstruation of the goddess. The Kulachara Tantra Marga tradition of Kamkhya develops over time and becomes unique to this temple. It is also the purest form of Shakta Tantrika tradition that still exists in the world.
After lunch, we’ll visit Umananda Temple, where Lord Shiva is revered, by ferry. As the name implies, this temple is located on Umananda Island, right in the middle of the Brahmaputra river. Umananda means “happiness” and was built by Ahom King Gadadhar Singha, a devout Shaivaite, in 1694. Inside, you can see an Achaturbhuja stone female figure and the rock-cut figures of Ganesha. Today, it’s also known as Peacock Island after a British officer recalled the shape of a peacock’s splayed feathers when looking at the island.
Then to Sukreshwar Temple, which is a famous temple from the 1700s as the sixth Jyotirlinga of India, one of the largest Shivalinga in India. This Lord Shiva temple was built by Ahom King Pramatta Singh on the Itakhuli Hill, or Sukreswar Hill, on the banks of the Brahmaputra River. This place earned its name after the legend of where the Guru of Asuras, Sri Shukracharya, would worship Lord Shiva here.
