A Shiva mandir constructed in 1764

I had some official work in a nearby office and so did not miss the chance to visit the temple. After a short spell I felt as mesmerized and the same very day I once again came with my family members and everyone thanked me to provide them the opportunity to visit this temple.

Temple and Trail
Dec 2018 • Friends
This temple is one of the sacred temple when it comes to visiting Guwahati . A beautiful stream flows near it . The hill where the temple is situated is also good for nature trail . There are many shops around it and temple has good parking space for visitors to travel by their own car or private vehicles . One should be careful of Rhesus Macaque while visiting the temple as they have a huge population .

A revered place in a natural setting within the city
May 2018 • Friends
Honestly, this is on the outskirts of the city. This is a Shiva temple and has a stream gushing behind it. This makes the setting very interesting and enjoyable. The temple is popular with the locals and the tourists. But its very dirty and has monkeys and goats around it. Don't know what spirituality they add to the temple? And its pretty dark at night. But enjoy the surroundings.

Ancient temple in natural surroundings
Aug 2017 • Family
This temple is set on the banks of a river which is itself a combination of three tributary rivers. The waters of the river are supposed to be of divine significance. It is also said that Mahirishi Vashishta meditated at this place and hence the importance. It is a calm and quiet place which can be visited for religious purposes too.

A heritage Shiva temple where Saga Vashista Muni meditated
May 2018 • Family
When our taxi driver suggested this place while making the itinerary we were not interested in the beginning but the drive insisted that we would miss something nice experience and so we agreed and went. It was indeed a right decision to visit this temple in the outskirts of the Guwahati city.
This can be called as a historic temple as the famous Indian Saga Vashishta had his penance for Shiva at this temple. There are many shops in front of the temple and ample car parking. From the steps leading to the entrance of the temple, so many monkeys can be seen playing and fighting, being video graphed by many visitors.

The temple is not very big but very nice and serene and the best part is the water streams at the back of the temple where water is forcefully gushing through and it was very nice sight.

An old temple dedicated to vashista maharishi
Mar 2018 • Family
This is an old temple situated about 2-3 kms from NH 37.. and sAid to be the cave where vashista Maharishi undertook penance.it has three water rivulets flowing near the place . These join and form the vashista Ganga. Behind the temple is a very neat and small picnic spot with small rivulets and falls. The vibrations received in the temple need to be experienced and cannot be described

Hidden surprises here Vashishta Ashrama and Maharishi Vishwamitra's Cave!!!
Mar 2018 • Friends
Everyone goes to Vashishta Temple if they're on a Guhawati visit. There is something holy and peaceful about the vibes there!
But here's the less spoken about part....there is a Vashishta Ashram right behind the temple...Not well developed as a tourist spot but really beautiful nevertheless!
Another 3-4km trek into the forest from here lies another valuable historic location - Maharishi Vishwamitra's cave!! This is where he meditated. Right next to it flows a river, which is clean and pure and it's said that if u bathe in it....it heals ur skin diseases!!!
These are a few unkown facts about the place. I have attached pictures here too!

Nice temple
Feb 2018
It is located outskirt of the Guwahati city. It is an ancient temple also known as Basistha ashram. You can enjoy the water stream flowing inside the temple. The parking is paid but available easily. Lot food stall outside for eating and drinks. It was told to me that there are lot of monkeys in the area but I didn’t see one. If you have time stop by this spot while coming back from Shillong to Guwahati.
