Kamakhya Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Kamakhya Devi. This is 1 shakti peeth of 51 power peeth. This temple is located in Nilanchal hill, Guwahati, Assam, West India. Apart from the main goddess Kamakhya, in this temple you will find other 10 forms of goddess Kali like Dhoomavati, Matangi, Bagola, Tara, Kamala, Bhairavi, Chinmasa, Bhubaneswarwari and Tripura Sundari. Out of these Tripura Sundari, Matangi and Kamala are in the main temple and the other seven are in different temples.
The Vyarman and Xianzang 7th century Chinese traveler neglected Kamakhya in the historical empire of the early Kamrup, because then it was believed that the Brahmini Ambit should be worshiped. According to the preliminary information of Kamakhya, the archaeological evidence of the temple in Tezpur will be found in 8th or 9th century. But later this temple was destroyed by Kalpahar, although in recent investigations, it was discovered that in the reign of Hussein Shah, this temple was destroyed. This was the demolition that Vishwindas discovered that they were the makers of the Couch Empire, who got the reputation but the temple was rebuilt under the rule of their son Narayan.
