  • Kamakhya Temple

This is one of the most significant temples of Assam, if you are travelling here, you can’t miss this. It is the temple of Goddess Shakthi and one of the oldest temples in Guwahati. A unique fact is that the river Brahmaputra runs completely red during the June month. It is said that it is the mensurating blood of Goddess Shakthi. The temple is beautiful, and this tops the tourist place all the time. 

The timing for the temple is 5.30 am to 10 pm and the entry is free.

It is THE park where you will find one-horned rhinos and sometimes their offsprings as well. Some other animals that you can see are the swamp deer, elephant, flying squirrels, gibbon, leopards. There are different kind of safaris for this park such as the Elephant safari and also the Jeep safari. If you are lucky you might see a tiger drinking water from the pon as well.
