“Ancient Temple”
Review of Vashistha Temple

Vashistha Temple
Reviewed 28 November 2013

It is really old temple and the inside of the temple will really give you that feeling. You will find a small water stream flowing at the back of this temple. Nice holy place for devotees.

I visited this place and found it is very quite and perfect place for meditation. there is a small fall beside the temple which goes to a lake. but there are plenty of monkeys around, though they don't disturb anyone.

This temple is situated among greenery a bit outside Guwahati. Muni Vashistha is said to have made this an ashram of his. There is an old temple by side of which a rivulete flows. During monsoon water level increases but other times visitors can get into it and sit on rocks for photography purpose.

There are a lot of monkeys around the place. The area around is not very nicely maintained and is littered with left overs of picnicing crowd. A more holistic approach towards maintenance of this holy place is needed.

Don't waste your time. Much beta take a walk near hotel or stay in room rather if you got time to kill in Guwahati.

Its location was at one time serene peaceful beautiful, but that was in the 1970's. Now no better than a roadside nullah or drain. With picnickers, lovers, teenagers monkeying around it will only ruine your day. Stay away and warn others as well.
