Why to visit Ugra Tara Temple

Ugra Tara Temple is located in the Lotaxil neighbourhood of Guwahati, and it houses the Tara goddess (Devi). The important Shakti temple, built in 1725 by the Ahom monarch Siva Singh, is visited by visitors and believers alike. The temple is remarkable in that it lacks an idol, as do other temples; instead, the inner sanctum contains a pitch of water that is worshipped as Goddess Tara, who is thought to be a manifestation of Goddess Parvati.

To the east of the shrine is a water tank named Jorepukhuri, which is part of the temple complex. This tank is thought to have survived a severe earthquake that levelled the temple's higher levels. Goddess Ugra Tara is worshipped as Goddess Kamakhya, and she receives offerings and sacrifices. The Goddess is said to enjoy meat, coconut, and liquor, therefore her worshippers show their love and devotion by offering these to her.





Special Tip

The greatest time to visit Ugratara is during Durga Puja, when the temple is filled with laughter and joy.
