Sukreswar Temple, Guwahati, Assam, India

Sukreswar Or Itakhuli Hill, Guwahati, Assam

Sukreswar Temple is perched on top of the Itakhuri hills at Guwahati in the state of Assam. Legend has it that, that Sage Sukra had his hermitage on this hillock and he used to worship his Lord Shiva in this temple. Originally dating back to the 18th century, the temple is believed to have the largest Shiva lingam or phallic emblem in India. The Kalika Purana identifies the hillock as Hastigiri hills due to its shape like the hump of an elephant. Constructed by the Ahom ruler Pramatta Singha in 1744 AD, the Sukreswar temple is located on the southern bank of the mighty Brahmaputra. The adjacent embankment is used for holy bathing and performing rituals. It is believed that the dead gain peaces if the post - death rituals are performed here. A flight of steps lead down from the temple complex to the river. Saraighat Bridge forms the backdrop and the river provides a magnificent view of sun set

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.
