Entrance gate of the famous Lungai Shiva Tempale
The Historical Lungai Shiva Temple
This is 23rd November 2009, when I pay a visit to my hometown, Abhayapuri (Bongaigaon) after a long time. As an adventurous freak, I always try to visit some new and exciting places. This time, I visited to a well famous temple known as Lungai Shiva Temple, 10 kms away from the main town of Abhayapuri of Bongaigaon District. The temple is located at the peak of the hill. Visitors need to climb the 227 stairs to reach the temple. The temple has sculptors of Lord Shiva, Lord Ganesha and Goddess Kali, which is worshipped three times a day. The temple was build by our ancestors with white monuments and has a great impact in the Assam history. A small river flowing beside the hill leaves the temple shine like a pearl at the top of the hill. Its an amazing place. I am also uploading some of the few snaps of the temple. Hope you will enjoy. Have checked it out!
I really like visiting the temple. Hope you too will visit this beautiful place soon. And yes, don’t forget to give the feedback. . . . Till then have a nice time.
