The Maa Kamakhya Temple, situated atop the Nilachal Hill in the city of Guwahati, Assam, is one of the most revered pilgrimage destinations in India, particularly for devotees of the Hindu goddess Kamakhya. This ancient temple, dedicated to Goddess Kamakhya, is an important center of tantric worship and is believed to be one of the oldest of the 51 Shakti Peethas, which are sacred sites associated with the divine feminine energy.

The temple complex is a fascinating blend of architectural styles, with its distinctive beehive-shaped shikhara (domes) and intricate carvings depicting various Hindu deities and mythological figures. One of the main highlights of the temple is the Garbhagriha (sanctum sanctorum), which houses the sacred yoni symbolizing the goddess's creative power. The temple attracts thousands of devotees and pilgrims, especially during the annual Ambubachi Mela, a festival celebrated to honor the goddess's menstruation cycle, usually held in June. Visitors can also explore other smaller shrines and temples within the complex dedicated to various deities. It's important to note that while the temple remains open throughout the year, it experiences heavy footfall during festivals and special occasions.
