This is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva located on an island in Brahmaputra River. The temple has a Shiva Linga in it's inner sanctum. The entire island is very green and we get to see Golden Langoors here. The temple has lot of scope for improvement in maintenance.

It is a simple and a small Shiva temple on the smallest inhabited river island in the world, the Peacock island. The ferry costs per person is very reasonable, provided you take the ferry from the designated spot. The contrast of this very small but very beautiful island with the mighty Brahmaputra makes it very unique and a must visit.

The temple was nothing special. The best part was the ferry boat ride to the island. There are also beautiful Golden Langur monkeys to watch.

The boat ride to this small hillock in the middle of the mighty Brahmaputra itself is do rejuvenating. The small temple on top with the tall trees filled with golden langoors and huge rocks make it ideal for lovers too!

Post my visit to Kamakhya temple , we hired a boat to visit a temple called Uma Nanda which is situated on the Peacock Island. A boat ride across the Brahmaputra River saw us reach our destination. TIP: Please hire a private boat if you are min.3 people and negotiate hard . 350-400 per person .

You need to go by boat or ferry to reach the temple on a hilltop across the river.It is a shiva parvati temple with huge crowds during shivaratri festivals and durga puja.There are shops inside the temple to buy offerings to God and you have to climb about 60 steps to reach the temple.Visit the temple and enjoy the views...
