Ambubachi Mela Kamakhya Temple

Ambubachi Mela is an annual Hindu festival celebrated at the Kamakhya temple Guwahati. The temple is one of the 52 oldest Shakti peethas of the India and is also known as the ‘birthplace of earth’. The Ambubachi Mela is the celebration of the yearly menstruation course of Goddess Kamakhya. It starts on the seventh day of Asad and usually falls during the monsoon season. This 4-day festival is celebrated with great religious values and is quite popular among the devotees. People from various corners of the world and country visit Guwahati to be a part of the festival. Another relevance of this festival is that it is observed for getting siddhis, tantra shakti and tantra knowledge. People believe that the tantrik siddhis are a gift of Goddess Kamakhya that will help them in achieving their life goals. Every year a lot of pilgrims fly to this place few days advance to get the blessings of the Goddess.

During this festival, the temple stays closed for 3 days and on the 4th day a grand felicitation is organised at the temple where devotees get prasada in the form of a red cloth that is considered to be a blessing of Devi Kamakhya. Buffalo and goat sacrifices are also a part of the rituals that are being performed at the temple. The significance of this festival is very high as it highlights the strength of females and reproduction. This year the festival will be celebrated from 22-26th June and can be visited by booking a train/bus/flight to Guwahati.
