I must say no trip to guwahati is complete without a visit to Umananda Island. Revered as smallest inhabited riverine island in the world. After the prayers, a complete round of the island is highly recommended. Major attraction of the island is 5 golden langurs an endangered species of primates.

The experience of reaching this island temple through a ferry is more exciting than the temple itself. There are is a government jetty that takes only Rs.20/- per head for an up and down trip. Whereas around a km before this is a private jetty. Many tourist unknowingly go there and they charge Rs.150 to 200/- per head for the... More

Uma Nanda temple is located in the middle of Brahmaputra river and can be accessed via a boat. The boat ride was a little inconvenient though due to huge crowd. The view from the temple is amazing. A good place to visit when in Guwahati.
