Umananda Temple is a magnificent Shiva temple located in Peacock Island on the river Brahmaputra, in Guwahati. The temple was built by an Ahom king in 1594. The temple attracts devotees from all over the country, especially during shivaratri festival. The main shrine is reached by a flight of steep steps. Ferry boats and motor launches ply regularly from Kachari Ghat in Guwahati.
