Pancha Pandava Temple, Guwahati, Assam, India

Pandu, near Brahmaputra, kamrup, guwahati, assam

There is ample literary and epigraphic testimony to the antiquity of the temple of Lord Pandunath. All the great dynasties of rulers of the Kamrup have paid homage to Lord pandunath in this ancient shrine. The history of Pandunath Devalaya has been narrated in a number of epics and Puranas beginning from the Mahabharata. It is believed that from the beginning of the creation Lord Vishnu was always living in the hills of Nilachal that is the reason that Pandu became a sacred place in many Vedas and Puranas. The 10th AD religious scriptures states about the Religious significance of The Pandunath Devalaya. The Devalaya is situated On Varah Hills, West of Nilachal parvata the Abode of Maa Kamakhya (Famous Kamakhya Temple), on the southern bank of Holy River Brahmaputra and a specific location called as BRAHMA KUND. The epic has different tales about Pandunath’s origin. One of the story narrates that at the beginning of the creation of universe, the lord Vishnu was resting on seshnag near Nilachal Parvat holding lotus in one hand and sudarshan chakra in other. Two drops of water fell on lotus which converted into Madhu & Kaitabh. The Brahma, who is seated on the lotus of Vishnu’s naval, was occupied creating VEDAS. The Madhu & Kaitabh duo with the beneficted demonic powers has tormented Brahma and stole away His Vedas and went to Rasatala, the seventh & lowest layer of the Universe. Worried Brahmaji prayed Lord Vishnu to Protect Him and get back the Vedas from them. Lord Vishnu fought Duo demon. The fight lasted for about five thousand years (Pancha Sahasra varsha). The Demons had a boon –“they can be killed at a waterless place only”.The Varaha avatar (Incarnation of Lord Vishnu ) took a big rock shape. The big rock when started drowning in the water Lord Shiva and Brahma took avatar as parvat and stabilized the Varah sila on the Parvat. The Lord Vishnu standing on this sila kept the head of both the asuras on his thighs and beheaded them with the sudarshan chakra.Thus lord Vishnu recovered the Vedas from the custody of Madhu and Kaitabh.

Guwahati: - Guwahati is the largest City in the state of Assam. It is one of the major riverine port cities and the city is undergoing a mad surge of developments these days. The city acts as a gateway to the northeastern India. The city acts as the starting block for most itineraries of the northeast. Guwahati is a prosaic heap of glass and concrete for the most part but there are sprinkles of interesting temples are and monuments to explore during the stay. One can salvage a generous amount of the traditional local flavor which lingers amidst the suburban ponds, small single storey houses, palm trees, and old colonial-era mansions.
