You can not find a Navagraha Temple like this any where where. Very powerful. You will become ease. Very peaceful on the top of Hills.

I went to Navagraha Temple. The structure of the temple is quite simple and elegant, with ancient inscriptions on the walls of the temple. The grace and simple charm of the temple are what intrigue tourists the most. It is great place to go.

You have to be more specific, however almost all of Guwahati hills have same vegetation cover, Navagraha temple has lots of green bushes, trees and not much commercialize. Temple is specifically surrounded by monkeys.
