Kamakhya Temple

The Kamakhya Temple in Assam is a standout amongst the most adored Shakti sanctums in India, and is viewed as one of the Shakti Peethams connected with the legend of Shiva and Daksha Yagna. Kamakhya is situated on a slope - Neelachala Parvat or Kamagiri close to the city of Guwahati in Assam. Shakti, dwelling on the Kamagiri slope is known as Kamakhya, the granter of goals. Assam generally has been known as the Kamarupa Desa and has been connected with Tantric hones and Shakti worship. This sanctuary was pulverized in mid sixteenth century, and afterward revamped in the seventeenth century by King Nara Narayana, of Cooch Bihar. Pictures of the manufacturer and related engravings are found in the temple. The Kalika Purana, an antiquated work in Sanskrit portrays Kamakhya as the yielder of all wishes, the youthful spouse of Shiva, and the supplier of salvation. This is a very good place for the art lovers.

I generally keep the first day for local exploration, so I started very early for Kamakhya Temple so as to visit other local places in the evening. It took me ~2hrs to reach the temple - from Pan Bazaar to Fatasil Hills to Nilachal Hills. After reaching the temple at ~9am, I thought that I would be able to see the deity in an hour or so. I couldn't be more wrong. There were 2 queues - one was for free entry and the other one was for express entry. Both of those queues were equally long, so I decided to take the normal route. I stood there with others for ~4.5 hrs. People standing next to me were chatting about how common tantric practices and animal sacrifices are in that temple.As those were auspicious days of Bihu, animals were being sacrificed and we were not allowed to enter the temple during that time. It was one of the goriest sight one can ever see. People standing near me were discussing that we could ask for anything from the deity as whatever you wish for in that temple comes true. I came out at ~2pm to board the bus which further took ~2 hrs to reach downtown.

9. कामाख्या देवी मंदिर, तांत्रिकों का गढ़:भारत में बहुत से मंदिर रहस्यमयी कहानियों से भरे पड़े है। असम का कामाख्या देवी मंदिर ऐसी अनोखी घटनाओं से भरा पड़ा है। कामाख्या देवी का मंदिर अघोरियों और तांत्रिकों का गढ़ माना जाता है। असम की राजधानी दिसपुर से लगभग 7 किलोमीटर दूर स्थित यह शक्तिपीठ नीलांचल पर्वत से 10 किलोमीटर दूर है। कामाख्या मंदिर सभी शक्तिपीठों का महापीठ माना जाता है। इस मंदिर में देवी दुर्गा या मां अम्बे की कोई मूर्ति या चित्र आपको दिखाई नहीं देगा। वल्कि मंदिर में एक कुंड बना है जो की हमेशा फूलों से ढ़का रहता है। इस कुंड से हमेशा ही जल निकलता रहतै है। चमत्कारों से भरे इस मंदिर में देवी की योनि की पूजा की जाती है और योनी भाग के यहां होने से माता यहां रजस्वला भी होती हैं। हर साल यहां अम्बुबाची मेला के दौरान पास में स्थित ब्रह्मपुत्र का पानी तीन दिन के लिए लाल हो जाता है। पानी का यह लाल रंग कामाख्या देवी के मासिक धर्म के कारण होता है। फिर तीन दिन बाद दर्शन के लिए यहां भक्तों की भीड़ मंदिर में उमड़ पड़ती है। आपको बता दें की मंदिर में भक्तों को बहुत ही अजीबो गरीब प्रसाद दिया जाता है। दूसरे मंदिरों से अलग, कामाख्या देवी मंदिर में प्रसाद के रूप में लाल रंग का गीला कपड़ा दिया जाता है। कहा जाता है कि जब मां को तीन दिन का रजस्वला होता है, तो सफेद रंग का कपडा मंदिर के अंदर बिछा दिया जाता है। तीन दिन बाद जब मंदिर के दरवाजे खोले जाते हैं, तब वह वस्त्र माता के रज से लाल रंग से भीगा होता है। इस कपड़ें को अम्बुवाची वस्त्र कहते है। इसे ही भक्तों को प्रसाद के रूप में दिया जाता है।

So the day has come which we were dreaming since a year and finally we are off to Gawhati from Chennai early in the morning (when booking are done in advance flight charges comes around 4k).We reached guwhati around 9am and waited for the others friends who joined us from Bangalore.We started our journey with a spiritual touch, reached Kamakya temple.Generally kamakya temple takes more than half a day if you go directly for dharshan. We had booked 500rs ticket in advance with help of a local friend, even though we waited for more than 3hrs to complete our dharshan. So plan accordingly if you wish to visit kamakya. After the dharshan we headed to one of the friends house where we had tasted the best assami food.After the hectic belly full lunch we rushed to catch the bus which we already booked to kaziranga. We have good amount of buses to kaziranga from gawhati which takes around 6-7hrs to reach(but then they mentioned 4hrs). FINALLY REACHED KAZIRANGA AT 9.30 PM. We stayed at a home stay which is decent enough.
