I went to Uma Nanda Temple. Uma Nanda Temple in Guwahati is dedicated to Lord Shiva, located on an Island (Peacock Island) in the middle of Brahmaputra River. The temple is perched on a mountain called Bhasmakuta. It is great place to go.

Good temple to visit for your spiritual satisfaction. More visited by the local people. Tourists are less common here.

You reach Pecock island and the temple by boat only. It's a short trip, the climb up to the temple is also not long. It is particularly nice to leave by a boat on the Brahmaputra at sunset.

Perched on hilltop of peacock island the place is worth visiting. Local boats are available. I recommend use the government one which charges ₹20 for return journey. The ferrying to cross the mighty Bramhaputra is in itself a wonderful experience

It is in fact a temple in a small island located in River Brahmaputra, one can visit this place to have a small tour on a boat. Monkeys are everywhere in this island. A cool place to have a visit.
