  • The ferry ride is the most thrilling part. The coconut water on the island being sold is a must to have. Unique wildlife. Perfect outing spot on a hot summer day. The breeze cools one down .
  • Located on an Island on Bramhaputra river this place is not only famous for the temple but also for the fantastic panaromic view it offers. A boat ride during sunrise or sunset is just mind-blowing.. The entrance to the inner sanctum is closed at 5p.m. but the Island can be visited. Reasonable boat fare for a two-way ride is 100 per person.
  • One has to take a ferry ride to reach this Old and ancient temple dedicated to Lord Shiva in middle of an island in Brahmaputra,specially recommended for Tourists.
  • It's a small temple. Good to visit at evening. But too much cost of ferry. 120 rupees per person in may 2017.
  • Located on the peacock island on River Brahmaputra, this can only be reached by ferry. There are ferry services available to reach this place. If you are in Guwahati, must consider visiting this place.
