Maa Kamakhya Temple is sacred for tantric and eternity seekers that’s why I
have named this post- “Maa Kamakhya Temple, Guwahati: The Land of Mystic
Because of many misconceptions about the scared Kamakhya Temple,
many people avoid travelling here. On the other hand, Shakti sadhaks (disciples)
and tantric worshipers thronged here to attain eternity. It is a belief that in
Kamakhya, a true worshiper of Maa Shakti, understands the reasoning of the bondage
of birth, life, and death; thus attain ‘moksha’.

The Kamakhya
is one of the oldest and sacred temples, residing on the hilltop of Neelanchal hills in Guwahati. The discussion and description
of this place are cited in many Hindu mythological scriptures- Mahabharat, Kalika Puran,
Yogini Tantrum,
 and much other ancient literature related to tantra

Since ancient times, the misconception about the myth
of black magic 
in Kamakhya prevails in the mindset of pilgrims. But thanks
to the increased awareness and connectivity, in which information technology and
social networking have an important role, this misconception is shredding down.
But still, our curious minds search for the mystic world of Kamakhya and this blog is my journey and search for sacred rituals of Kamakhya.

Yesterday’s Umananda trip (Umananda Island- Make my trip to the most beautiful world) was memorable and today’s we
planned a day trip to Maa Kamakhya temple. We took a private tri-auto wheeler
from the hotel for Kamakhya temple. It is about 7-8 km and the complete journey
took us 1 hr approximately. It was early in the morning, still, we were welcomed
by a long queue of devotees. 

Queue of devotees
There is another way to Maa Kamakhya temple via
VIP pass for special VIP person and this VIP pass is available on ticket
counter near to temple complex. I could just imagine the crowd during Kali
puja. To accommodate the long queue of devotees, the temple trust has divided
the courtyard of the temple into very narrow lanes barricaded with grills.
These narrow lanes give the feeling of your entrapment of life i.e. ‘Maya’.  Saubhagya Kund is visible from the barricade, in which devotees take bath before the worship of the mother, but it is not necessary.

The long wait to
meet Maa, force us to think about who we are and why we are here. I was in this
cerebration and could also feel the spiritual vibes in the queue. Lots of
people were chanting “क्लींक्लींकामाख्याक्लींक्लींनमः”, Kamkahya Maa Beej Mantra. I also joined
the chorus. It took almost three hours to reach the temple garbhagriha. Maa was
testing the patience of her devotees-‘bhakts’, but eventually she bestows her
love on us. It was very close to 13.00 so priests were in hurry for letting all
devotees pass through. At 13.00, the temple door closes for prasadam for Maa.
We were the last visitor before they close the door, so we got some ample time
to have mental discourse with Maa.

Some important notes:-

  • Temple opens the door at 8.00 AM for the darshan.
  • The door closes at 1.00 PM
    for Prasadam
  • Door reopen 2.30 PM for
  • Aarti 5.30 PM, visitors are
    allowed in garbhagriha (only those who are already in the garbhagriha) and
    closes for the night then. 

In my opinion, if you are visiting with young
children, then do not forget to take water, juice, fruits, and biscuits with
you. In general, it will take you two to three hours to reach temple garbhagriha
so one should mentally prepare to stand for such a long time. It is treacherous
for old people and young children.

Mythology: A folklore on Kamakhya Temple

Maa Kamakhya
temple is built in reverence to Goddess Sati, one of several incarnations of
Maa Shakti. It is said that the Kamakhya Temple is the site of a mythological legend. Daksha,
the son of Brahma performed a celestial “Yagna Kund” and intentionally didn’t
invite his youngest daughter Sati and her husband Lord Shiva. Goddess Sati was
not happy with her father’s behaviour. Despite reservation from Lord Shiva, Sati
went for the ceremony, but she felt insulted by her father. She couldn’t tolerate
the further insult and thus immolate herself in yagna fire. Upon hearing this
news, Lord Shiva, in his wrath created Virabhadra and Bhadrakali. Along with
Shiva’s attendant ‘bhootgana’, Virabhadra marched to the kingdom of Daksha.
They destroyed his Yagna and Virabhadra decapitated Daksha’s head. Shiva’s
anger later pacifies, and he forgave Daksha. He returned him his life but with
the head of a goat.

Yet upon seeing the charred body of Shakti, Shiva
went into a trance state of deep grief and anger. Shiva performed celestial
dance: ‘Tandav’; uncontrolled destruction everywhere. Thus Vishnu decided to
console Shiva, and to do so, he cut the body of Sati into 51 pieces (some say
108). The body pieces fell on the earth and place where it fell revered with the
power of Shakti. These places are worshipped by Hindu pilgrimage and called
Shakti Peetha. And on the Neelanchal hill or Kamgiri, Maa Sati’s Yoni (female
genital) fell. Thus, since then people worship Maa Sati at Kamakhya temple. The
sanctum of the temple is below the ground level and the idol is consists of a
rock with a fissure representing a female genital. This vulva-shaped depression
is worshipped as Maa Kamakhya. 

Rock naturally representing female genital at Garbhagriha

This sanctum is miraculously always filled with underground water. This kind of creation made
by nature gives us the feeling of those unseen power and we get bowed down. We worship these unseen powers in the form of God, which is the basis of religion. Das Mahavidya Devi is also established here which is 10 different
cosmic personalities of Divine Mother Kamakhya (Maa Sakti/Maa Durga).

Architectural description of temple Complexes 

The courtyard of
the Maa Kamakhya temple was reverberating with Maa’s mantra: 
 जयंती मंगला काली भद्रकाली कपालिनी दुर्गा क्षमा शिवा धात्री स्वाहा स्वधा नमोऽस्तु‍ते I The chanting of
this mantra infuses energy. We were chanting this mantra while waiting in queue
to worship Maa. While I was in the queue, I was able to study the architectural
marvel of the temple. Maa Kamakhya temple is very distinct from other temples
from northern India. The temple is largely a rock-cut sculpture with a
hemispherical dome on a cruciform base, popularly called the Nilanchal type. The
temple has four chambers, aligned in a line from east to west. 
entrance to the temple is via the northern door and also a way to the
garbhagriha is via a narrow lane staircase in the east.

The chambers are:

  • Garbhagriha
  • Calanta
  • Pancharatna
  • Natamandir

Garbhagriha is
the main chamber where the yoni-shaped idol resides, and the rest three
chambers are called mandapas. Garbhagriha
has big Shikharas of polygonal dome-like structure and it is circled by several minarets. It is like a small cave, to go down there is a narrow stone
step which leads to the mother’s symbol where there is always an atmosphere of
mystery due to darkness.

The first mandapas are Calanta, a square shape
chamber. Its wall contains images of deities and related inscriptions.
middle chamber is the biggest one, called Pancharatna and in the west.
It is
in a rectangular shape with a flat roof. It has five similar shikharas; the middle
shikharas is bigger than the rest.

The last one is Natamandira at the west with an apsidal
end and ridged roof. The walls of all chambers are decorated with sculpted
images of gods, goddesses, and have inscriptions mainly from the Ahom period.
On the other hand, stone sculptures are engraved on the outer wall. 

Historical aspects of Kamakhya temple

Though the mythological legend is more famous, the
archaeological aspects of the temple tell a different story. The inscriptions
found in the Nilachal region are dated as early as the 13th century
with a majority from the 5th century. These are clay seal and copper
plate inscriptions, popularly called Kamarupa inscriptions. Temple may predate
the establishment of the Kamarupa dynasty.

It could be a religious sacrificial site for Khasis,
Garos, Kiratas and Naraka’ Austroasiatic local tribal goddess (Kuldevi): Kamei-Kha
which was later called Kamakhya by the Hindus. Khasis and Garos belong to
Indo-Mongoloid, an admixture of both Aryan and non-Aryan blood, living in the
hills of northeast India. These tribes were worshipers of Shiva. The cult of the mother goddess worshipped in the Yoni symbol is opposed to Shiva. Thus, Nilachal
hills must have belonged to matriarchal tribes and were later adopted by Khasis
and Garos. And this is evident from the presence of Shiva-Lingam in Umananda,
the Peacock Island.

Ritual Sacrifice Place
Ritual Sacrifice Place

Thus, Shaivism
and Saktism cults were popular among tribes of north-eastern India and predate the
Aryan period. The Kalika Purana and Yogini tantra formed the guidelines for
such practices. Later with the Aryan invasion, such practices were inculcated in
Aryan culture and later formed an important sect in Hinduism. Hinduism
flourished in north-eastern India via royal patronage. The earliest written
inscription i.e., epigraphy about Kamakhya temple is from Vanamalavarmadeva
of the Mlechchha dynasty of the mid-9th century. The Tezpur plates indicate
a massive temple of Nagara architectural style; pointing out Mlechchha rulers
were patronage of the Kamakhya temple. Later, rulers of the Pala dynasty of
Kamarupa kingdom main promoter of the Tantric sect of Hinduism in North-East
India worshipped Kamakhya.

During the 10th century, Kamakhya Temple was the famous
centre for Tantrik worship/sacrifices and black sorcery which made the image of
this temple very mysterious among the people. Meanwhile, a very mysterious cult
was emerged called Buddhism Vajrayana cult which is the same as Hindu
Vampanth/Vamachara cult. The practice of animal and bird sacrifice which has
been going on since ancient times continues in this temple even today but then
this should be stopped in the Kamakhya temple because the mother never wants to
sacrifice any innocent living.

The modern temple of Kamakhya has a lineage to
Vishwa Singha who found the ruins of the ancient temple and later his son Nara
Narayan built it during his reign. And it was later supported by rulers of the Ahom
Kingdom. Rudra Singha and Siba Singha of Ahom Kingdom were the main patronages
of the temple. He established the Mahant culture in the Kamakhya temple. On a
separate note, the Nilachal architecture of the temple was inspired by a mix of
Islamic and Nagara styles and by the both Hindu and Muslim craftsmen of Bengal.

Fairs/Festivals of the Kamakhya Temple 

Kamakhya, Maa Durga, Das Mahavidya, and Maa Shakti are all forms of the same
Mother Goddess therefore, here at this place the mother powers have major influence
and dominated all. Due to this, almost all events related to maternal powers
are mainly celebrated as festivals. From those, two main religious ritual
festivals are celebrated in the Kamakhya temple site with great fervour and
prominence. People from all over India and abroad come in million to see and join
these traditional rituals festivals are:

Ambubachi Mela:-   

It is celebrated yearly in every
June month as per the Gregorian calendar and mostly falls on either 21st
or 22
nd June. It is a 4-5 days celebration of the festival.  Ambubachi is locally known as “Ameti
or “
Amoti” means “fertility” so this holy religious festival is locally
known as “fertility festival” which is associated with Maa Kamakhya and Mother
Earth. The word Ambubachi means water flowing (“
Ambu” means water and “Bachi
means flowing) and this is observed during the monsoon season in a natural way.

·       Maa Kamakhya– 

    It is a religious belief that Goddess Maa Kamakhya goes
through her annual cycle of menstruation during this time and its symbolic idol
(naturally female genital like structure on stone) is visible in the cave of this
holy mother Kamakhya Temple which is the object of reverence where womb of the
Mother Goddess fell.

·      Mother Earth 

     On the other hand, people from ancient time; believe
that during this time (monsoon rains), Mother  Earth enters into the period of
her annual menstruation as the fertile woman who represents her creative and
nurturing power which show the deep-rooted connection of Mother Earth with
ancient agriculture value.

Both connections show the women’s power (shakti)of fertility and childbearing capabilities within every woman and thus we all celebrate this auspicious festival as womanhood.

During Ambubachi Mela, the temple
closed for three days as it believes that the goddess rests for three days and
regain her fertility like the traditional women’s menstrual seclusion and on
the fourth day the temple is re-opened for pubic and prasad (i.e.,
Angodak’ and ‘Angabastra’) is distributed.  Angodak
is water from spring, symbolic representing fluid of the Maa Kamakhya’s Yoni. Here
a piece of red cloth is given to devotees called “Angabastra” which is
used to cover the stone yoni during menstruation days. It is considered highly
auspicious and powerful. That’s why devotees’ crowds gather to get this prasad.

On these four days, Tantrik,
Aghoris, Sadhus, and female Sadhvis appear in bizarre costumes which symbolize
their religious acts. Those who remain the centre of attraction in a way, but
there is a need to be careful with them because pretence and hypocrisy dominate
here too with their Tankrik Shakti cult.

Durga Puja (Kumari Puja)-

Durga Puja is another major
festival that is celebrated at Kamakhya Temple. By the way, this is celebrated
all over India with great enthusiasm and pomp.
In which Bengal and Assam have their importance of Durga Puja, but Durga
Puja is celebrated differently in Kamakhya Temple. The religious rituals act
here is unique and different from other places such as the ritualistic bath of
the deity (Pithasthan/shaktipeeth). There is a traditional practice of offering
sacrifices in which pigeons, buffaloes, fishes, goats, sugarcanes, gourds, and
pumpkins are sacrificed.

  •  Kumari Puja –

It means worship of a virgin
girl which occupies a prominence without which honour to Maa Sakti is not
complete. Here, the virgin girl represents Maa Kamakhya and is decorated, like a mother
goddess. It is believed that this ritual makes Maa Kamakhya happy and gives
blessings by removing all the sorrows and misfortune of her devotees.

There is a
hidden message in every act of Hinduism. For example, virgin girl worship also adored
the value of women and celebrate womanhood. Philosophically, it shows the power
of creation, stability, and destruction. But it is also a matter of introspection
whether we respect women in today’s context. Is girl, maiden, or woman able to
feel their importance and power? On one hand, we celebrate the yearly menstruation
cycle at Maa Kamakhya temple and on other hand, we consider female menstruation
as impure. Maybe it is time for us to learn from our own ritual’s hidden meaning.
It is long overdue to celebrate feminism at par with masculinity.

Tips and information while visiting the Kamakhya Temple-

Kamakhya Sanyasi/Monk/Sage
My Sanyasi Gurubhai
  • Photography or videography is
    not allowed inside the Maa Kamakhya Temple complex. Even smartphones are not
    allowed for safety purposes. The temple committee doesn’t allow any photos and
    videography. One needs a special permit from the government of India for this.  
    All photos of the temple complex in this article are taken from my ascetics Sanyasi Guru Bhai, who is
    also my best friend: He spent few years in Maa Kamakhya Peeth, now he is living in the Kedarnath Himalaya region.
  • There is always a long queue for
    entering the temple, so try to reach early in the morning and keep a water
    bottle with you.
  • Don’t get caught up in the magic
    trick of scamster/con disguise as sage, because true sages don’t show miracles on
  • This temple complex is a sacred place
    and a national heritage. Therefore, please do respect the rules and
    sentiments of locals. Along with this, do not spread filth on temple premises.

Maa Kamakhaya’ Kingdom- No one returns disappointed-

We stayed in the temple
courtyard till 4PM; the atmosphere here was very spiritual, very pleasing to
the mind. We saw and explored every part of the temple and tried to understand
the carving, structure, importance of the temple, and its history.  In the middle of the temple courtyard, there is the temple of a Mata Sheetla, which is another personality of cosmic Maa Kamakhya. Along with this, a deep pavilion has been built for lighting a lamp.

Maa Sheetla Temple & Deep Pavilion

Monks dressed in saffron
clothing and performing different ‘mudras’ (creating different shapes with the
help of hands and fingers) were attracting people towards them. The
reverberation of mantras, seeing people performing religious rituals in a group
was making the atmosphere quite exciting, curious, and mysterious. In Kamakhya,
people come in search of truth, material desire, or enjoyment, despite all
these Maa Kamakhya never belittles her visitor. It is said that a true devotee
with faith and devotion for Maa, will get one’s wishes fulfilled.

We came out of the temple
courtyard, bow down to Maa with a promise to return. We went to explore the
local market here and bought some local handicrafts as a souvenir.

My Overview

Gathering of Sage at Kamakhya Temple

People’s desire to get everything quickly, lead to their
vengeful action which may be due to their ignorance and immaturity. Spiritual
powers are being misused in the name of Maa Kamakhya, which may
be in the form of black magic. One needs to understand that one
needs to pay for their deeds. Those who are misusing their spiritual power, deviate
from their spiritual goal.
Their actions may malign
religion. When people run behind their desire and lust; they first fall into
the trap of these cons disguised as sage. So, beware of these cons near the temple. 

Sage performing rituals at Maa Kamkhya Temple Complex
Sage performing rituals at Maa Kamakhya Temple 

One can’t find a real sage in this
material world unless until one finds his true disciple or audience of his
worth. My own experience says that
Maa Kamakhya loves everyone. So how did the word black magic get
associated with Maa Kamakhya? Even many myths of black
are mainly trickery of cons. These actions create an atmosphere
of fear, mistrust, and confusion among people. I think
we human
beings are responsible for creating such confusion and leading entangled life
with illusion. Maybe someday when I will visit Maa Kamakhya Temple at Guwahati again, I will elaborate more
especially on some of my personal spiritual experiences in Nilachal, The land of mystic spiritualism. 

For now, I will
end this blog with the earliest reverence for Maa in Hinduism, appearing in
chapter 10.125 of the Riga Veda, popularly known as the Devi Suktam hymn.

order battle for the people, I created Earth and Heaven and reside as their
Inner Controller. On the world’s summit, I bring forth sky the Father: my home
is in the waters, in the ocean as Mother. Thence I pervade all existing
creatures, as their Inner Supreme Self, and manifest them with my body. I
created all worlds at my will, without any higher being, and permeate and dwell

  2. Yes Arya, you are right, whatever is written in all our old literature, scriptures and texts, all of them have their own symbolic meaning. It depends on us what meaning we take for it. This is the hallmark of our texts that nothing is imposed on us, but gives us complete freedom to take the meanings. That's why our religion is called a great religion. Every single word our scriptures is a storehouse of knowledge.
    And this knowledge, we get to see in various our art works, in our daily customs, rites, in culture, which gives a momentum to our life in right direction. So we can say that Kamakhya Temple is not only a center of faith but also a symbolic manifestation of the same wonderful knowledge which we need to understand and accept in the right sense.

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful thought as a feedback….
