It is part of the 51 shakti peeths, with the Kamakhya temple being one of the oldest and dedicated to the goddess Mother Kamakhya. Positioned on the Nilachal hill in the western part of Guwahati, it holds great significance as a pilgrimage site, particularly for those who follow tantric traditions. This shrine is considered one of the most sacred shakti peethas, as it is believed to be the actual place where the goddess’ womb fell, symbolizing immense female strength and fertility. Every year, during the June Ambubachi Mela, hundreds of devotees flock to the temple. According to legend, Goddess Sati immolated herself after her husband, Lord Shiva, faced disrespect in her family’s home. Overwhelmed with grief, Lord Shiva carried her body, causing chaos in the cosmos. When Lord Vishnu used his divine Sudarshana chakra to calm the enraged God by severing Sati’s body, the scattered pieces gave rise to the shakti peethas across India. The construction of the current temple building is credited to the Ahom kings. Notably, the shikhara, resembling a beehive, is adorned with sculpted panels depicting Hindu deities and goddesses.
