Umananda Temple, Guwahati
The Umananda Temple is located in the small Peacock Island amidst the mighty Brahmaputra. This quiet place of worship is named after and dedicated to Lord Shiva. The name ‘Umananda’ comes from the two Hindi words ‘uma’ – Lord Shiva’s wife and ‘ananda’ meaning happiness. The Peacock Island is the smallest inhabited riverine in the world and possibly one of the most beautiful too. The Umananda temple is nestled in the laps of this serene island whose shores are washed by the mighty Brahmaputras. It is a haven for nature lovers. The surroundings of the temple are undisturbed and serene and thus prove to be a perfect place just to sit and enjoy the beauty of the areaThe temple is situated on the top of a hill called Bhasmakala or Bhasmakuta. The island was originally built in 1694 A.D. by King Gadadhar Singha. However, it was destroyed by an earthquake in 1897 and later rebuilt by a wealthy local merchant. The Umananda temple was crafted beautifully by the skilled Assamese workmen. Aside from Lord Shiva, there are 10 other Hindu Gods whose idols reside in the shrines.Aside from being a place of worship, The Umananda temple is also a pleasurable exception to the typical places of worship. Devoid of the cacophony of forceful religion, this place has a serene environment which makes you want to sit down for a while and absorb the beauty of the place
