  view of the mighty Brahmaputra river from hill top
by Rupanworld

In the Neelachala hill, somewhere in the middle (during upward journey) is situated the Kamakhya temple. However, there are other temples also in this hill and after the Kamakhya temple, perhaps the Bhuvaneswari temple is the most famous. This temple is situated on the top of the hill, unlike the Kamakhya temple which is half way in between. From this temple site, one can have a majestic view of the mighty river Brahmaputra flowing below and also a bird's eye view of Guwahati city. Both the views are truly majestic.
