Why to visit Umananda Island

Located in the midst of the Brahmaputra River, it was dubbed "Peacock Island" during the British Raj, and the name refers to the island's beauty and peacefulness. This island is perhaps one of the best spots to visit in Guwahati for couples looking for peace and quiet in a secluded location.

The old form of rock-cut figures of Lord Surya, Ganesh and Shiva allows anyone to appreciate the beauty and skills of craftsmanship of Assamese people who showed their dedication towards spiritual energy. The sound of temple bells and water alongside uplifts the mood of devotees and tourists in one sway. This has become one the best tourist places in Assam as it is easily reachable by jetties which are available on the banks of Brahmaputra river.

Special Tip

The islet can be reached via 10-minute ferry, available from Umananda Ghat, located near Guwahati Highcourt.
