Nabagraha Temple Guwahati- Sacred Place in Serene Environment
Mar 2020
Visited Nabagraha Temple Guwahati on 9th March 2020, Monday
We (my wife and I) started from Hotel Shreemoyee Inn in car of the hotel.
The Navagraha (नबग्रहा) Temple is on the top of Chitrasal Hill. The hill is popularly known as Navagraha Hill, in Guwahati city, Assam, India. Nine Shivalingams (शिवलिंगा) are preserved in this temple. Each represents a Spiritual body. Each of them is covered with a coloured garment symbolic of each of the Spiritual body. There is Shibalingam in the center of the temple which is symbolising the Sun.
King Rajeswar Singha built this temple in middle of 18th century. It has been renovated about hundred year before. The upper part of the temple was rebuilt with corrugated iron-sheet after being destroyed by the great earthquake. The history is vast enough. But I could collect a book due to paucity of time. The inside of the temple was dark. We offered Pujas which took about an hour. Taking photos was not prohibited in this temple. I am attaching few photos.
We next went to Uma Nand Temple on Bhramaputra Island.

The only grahapujan temple in Guwahati
Mar 2020 • Family
A famous and the only grahapujan temple in Guwahati, beautifully located in the Chitrasal Hill (more popularly known as Navagraha Hill). One of the oldest temples in the city, was built in the 18th century by the Ahom King Rajeswar Singha and renovated in the mid 20th century after part of it was damaged by one of the greatest earthquakes of the region.
Located beautifully at the hilltop you get complete tranquility once you reach the entrance. Only 5-10 min pleasant drive from the busy city road lands you in a place where you can enjoy the feel of getting disconnected from all the crowd, and pollution of city life.
Very friendly priests helping you through all procedures in the temple . They will lead you explaining all the nine celestial bodies according to Hindu mythology - Surya, Chandra, Mangal, Budh, Brihaspati, Shukra, Shani, Rahu and Ketu, each represented by a Shivling with a colour representing each celestial body.
The panoramic view of a part of the beautiful city another joy.
Beautiful road condition and enough parking places.

Very different temple. Must see
Nov 2019
Even though the temples close early in the evening, this is a 'must see' temple in Guwahati. This temple is quite different from any other Navagraha temples seen elsewhere. All Navagrahas are in the shape of Shivaling and placed with huge space in between allowing space to walk around each of them. Said to be very powerful.

Worth to visit, but expect miracles
Apr 2019 • Friends
On the hill facing city and Brahmaputra (very good place for sunset photos of the river). The temple is small, but circle of lingas are rare view and bring special mood. Beware of monkey gangs outside, however, they were not aggressive, just begging for food.

Temple of the 9 Planets

A must visit if you are in Guwahati. A very holy place for hindus. One can get a panaromic view of Guwahati from the hill-top.

A must see temple in Guwahati
Apr 2019 • Family
We had been to this temple earlier also but still we had in mind to visit it again as last time we didn't have enough time. It is surprising that the temple was built in 18th century and after that in spite of several major earthquakes nothing has happened to this temple. Here anyone can enjoy spectacular views of the Brahmaputra river and the valley below.

Inside the dark
Mar 2019 • Friends
It's seems little exciting to be in this Temple, as it's all dark and Diya lights on linga, make the ambience interesting.

worshipping the 9 planets for betterment of life is one of the oldest tradition in Hindu mythology.
