What is Umanda Temple History?
On reaching this beautiful location surrounded by Brahmaputra river or commonly known as Umanada river. I was curious to know the significance of Umanda Temple.
As per the priest “ When lord Shiva was once doing meditation on this Umanda Island was interrupted by Kamadeva, the Kamadeva bear the dire consequences he was burned into ashes by the fire of lord shiva’s anger. The presiding deity in this temple is lord shiva.
It is believed that worship on Amavasya if it falls on Monday will bring laurels & happiness in your life.
How To Reach Umanda Temple ?
As, this beautiful temple is situated on the banks of river Brahamaputra also known as Umanda river by locals. One can reach here by ferries. These( ferries)are available from fancy bazar ghat . Travelling via ferries is a quite good experience. Though travelling via ferries are a bit expensive, however, this expenditure is worth spending when you will be on ferry viewing the great aquatic life of river Brahamputra, perhaps if you’re fortunate you can have a glimpse of dolphin fish. On the way, you will see the golden langurs which are an amazing experience which we had
