  • One of my long pending wishes are fulfilled. Reached at night in a culm & cool atmosphere. My heart filled with devotion!!
  • Beautiful Bell temple, where devotees tie bells to get their wishes fulfilled. The main banyan tree where the bells used to be tied, broke due to the weight of the bells. Now posts all along the boundary have been provided in replacement. Very well kept & a lovely sight to see so many bells of different size all over the compound.
  • Good place peaceful more than 1 lakh bell is available here
  • A very nice and a decent temple. Temple is surrounded by lots of tea garden.
  • Tilinga Mandir, Assam The Tilinga Mandir nestles in a small town which is 7km fare from Tinsukia District of Assam, Bordubi. It is a very famous Shiva temple in Upper Assam. Tilinga means ‘bell’ in Assamese and mandir means ‘temple’. This temple has the largest collection of bells and has made it to the Limca Book of World Records for hosting the largest collection of bells of all types in this temple. There are hundreds and thousands of bells of all sizes in bronze, brass, copper and aluminium that are tied to the bog peepal tree and on its various branches. This temple is another tourist attraction of Assam Tourism. When we talk of the Tilinga Mandir and Bordubi Tinsukia, the presence of the tea tribe which were brought by the British colonial planters is very strong and worth a mention. They are found in every district of Assam. This tribe is one of the most exploited and backward tribes in India. However newer generations are comparatively educated. Karam Puja is the most important festivals of the tea tribe communities of Assam with a view to propitiate “Mother of Earth”- the goddess of creation. It is celebrated in the mid of August on the night of ‘Bhado Ekadasi’ basically an agriculture related festival. And their famous dance performance in the night of Karam Puja is known as ‘Jhumair Nritya’. Basically a group dance performance by the rhythm of ‘Dhol’ and ‘Madal’ by a group of young man and women. The history of this temple goes back to 1965 nearly half a century where tea garden workers of this area noticed a ‘Shiv Linga’ emerge from the ground near this banyan tree. The administrators of the garden then suggested that a small temple should be built here. This temple is as spiritually and mystically strong as any other temple. Feet away from the mystical tree there are more than a hundred Shiva tridents carelessly speared into the sand and most of them are packed together in one place. Thousands of people from the various places comes to this temple and offers their prayer and ties a bell to the banyan tree. According to Hindu Mythology ‘Monday’ is considered as ‘Lord Shiva’s’ day and therefore every Monday a huge number of people gather here to worship Lord Shiva. If you do plan to visit ‘Tilinga Mandir’ for the first time then ‘Monday’ should be the day. There is a belief that if someone hangs a bell from one of the branches of the tree with any wish in mind their wishes comes true. Specially the young boys and girls come together and offer their wishes and prayer’s together. Initially when people came to pray here, they promised to come back and present a bell to the temple if their prayers were answered. From small ones, which might weigh more than 5grams to heavy 55 kilo ones, a whole range of bells hang in the temple’s premises. How to reach The Tilinga Mandir: By Air: nearest airport is Mohanbari airport, Dibrugarh. You can also reach the temple by private car or bus. By train: Nearest station is Tinsukia town station. From there this temple is well connected by bus to Bordubi where the temple is situated. Places to look around: The roadway to Bordubi from Tinsukia or Dibrugarh district is a real delight for visitors who love greenery. Throughout the way you can enjoy lush green Tea Gradens of Upper Assam until your eyes get tired. The surrounding of the mandir is very serene and beautiful.
