One of the 52 Shaktipeeths

The temple normally has 3-4 hours of waiting time. Hence if you are travelling with strict timelines it is advisable to go for VIP darshan where you need to buy tickets paying Rs. 500 per person. Kids below 10 years are free. Vaccine Certificate or RTPCR report is compulsory for adults. The temple is a traditional style Ghumat temple with the Garbhgriha at the middle of the largest Ghumat. Disappointed with the priests who ask for donations at any available instance. The garbhgriha's approach is through narrow steps and there the Mata resides in the form of Yoni. A must visit place if you have religious inclination.

A sacred temple,one of the Devi Shakti Peethas, located atop Neel Parbat at Guwahati. As of now there are some restrictions due to Covid19 pandemic, for Darshan it's better to engage a local guide paying mutually agreed reasonable amount, please follow proper dresscode.

I visited in Dec 2019, we paid 500Rs special VIP darshan still we had to wait for 2-3hrs. we reached the temple around 9.30 or 10.00 am. after standing in line for 30min we got vip tickets after we waited in a Vip room for 30min more around 3.30 or 4pm we completed our darshan. it gets pretty dark by 5pm in Guwahati or Meghalaya so you cant go anywhere else

Take the VIP pass which is Rs. 500 per individual and u will get the Darshan inside within 15min-1 hours while in ordinary Darshan it will take u around 4 to 5 hours. Should visit during your stay at Guwahati.

I wanted to visit Kamakhya temple since long but after covid there was no proper information that weather temple is open or not than how is Kamakhya junction but I took risk and thought of let's go there and explore it. nearest station is Kamakhya junction and once you reach there is waiting room if you do not have hotel room or you have less budget you can fresh up and can start your journey early morning.door opens at 7am after covid,there for reaching to temple you can reserve taxi ,auto from there or just take a walk for 10 minutes towards highway and get to or bus.once you reach there than you have 3options to reach on top to temple either you can reserve cab or take a shared cab and at last by walk.i would suggest if you have senior citizen than take cab. Yes most important on station and in temple you need to have test report or 2nd dose of vactination or else they will let you suffer. beautiful view from there definitely carry your camera also after Pooja you should visit bhimashankar temple.from it's little far but once you will reach there you will never forget the scenario.

The Living Goddess
Apr 2021
O Mother - forgive me for committing the sin of rating your abode of truth . I am thankful for this perishable body on abode of death ( earth) . There is no "dharma" bigger than Kamakhya , no "wisdom" bigger than Kamakhya , no "truth" bigger than kamakhya , no desire bigger than "Kamakhya", no devotion bigger than "kamakhya" . This is the pilgrimage of highest stature amongst all the Hindu pilgrimage places ( be it Sakthi peeth or Teerth peeth ) . Never do the mistake of observing Mother from womb - we can't do that ever , nor do the mistake of trying to see Mother with 5 senses :) . Anyway - coming to the ambience & surroundings - please go to this place with full devotion , and not with an argumentative/debating mind . And then you will realise what AdiSakti is al about . The Pandas are caretakers and are the intermediaries . They too have to earn their livelihood, so please be considerate . I have never seen them being unreasonable . They will accept what you give as dakshina from heart . It depends on how you deal with them . There may be pandas inside the main temple asking for charity or dakshina . You can politely decline or give based on your financial appetite . Nobody gonna throw you out anyway . The fact is that never judge the sanctity & power of a place based on mundane transactions . It's an amazing place for devotees and you will fall in love with the RED colour if you stay there for more than a day . Jai Maa Kamakhya ..Hail Mother

A holy place for Hindus

It is an ancient temple located on top of a hill. 4 different temples are also situated nearby. The view of Guwahati city is spectacular from the view point that is located before reaching the Ma Kamakhya temple.

We visited the temple in the afternoon so we had the darshan without any problem.
