- Its definitely not worth by any count for the devotee or the general traveller alike
- Its supposed to host 9 Planets and some sort of astrological/astronomical drawings etc., But could not find any such significant motifs or architecture
- Place is as usual in Guwahati is absolutely neglected and is not worth spending your precious time

The Navagraha Temple is situated on the top of Chitrasal Hill in Guwahati. You have to climb some stairs from road to reach the main shrine.
Enshrined in this temple are nine Shivalingams and these represent the nine planets, each covered with a colored garment symbolic of each of the planet, with a Shivaligam in the centre symbolizing the Sun. Inside of temple is dark and you have to stand there for sometime to accustom your eyes to see things properly or carry something like torch or may be mobile phone can help you to see.
There were lots of monkeys jumping around and I have to move around very carefully to avoid them, be careful.
There is nothing much to mention about temple but if you are going from religious point of view then ok but if you are going from a tourist point of view then you will not find much to see except for the view of Guwahati city from above.

The Navagraha Temple or the temple of the Nine Planets is not something we are very familiar with. So the name of this temple mainly attracted me to go and see what it actually is. Being situated on top of a hill the temple premises provide a panoramic view of the Guwahati City alongside the mighty Brahmaputra River. The serine atmosphere surrounding it with a breath-taking top angle view of the city filled our heart. The temple was the abode of the nine planets whom we worship according to the Indian astrology and whom we look upon as controller of our fate. The inside of the temple was only lit with diyas and the nine planets appearing like nine small Shivalingas were placed in a circular fashion surrounding the Sun or Surya at the center.
