  • Oldest and beautiful temple in Brahmaputra island.we have to travel by ferry to see and come back. Flowers and puja needs are available on island . Good place to visit
  • 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.
