  • A short time boat ride in Bramhaputra River will take us to this scenic Island where UMA NANDA temple is located. Better eat well before you start, as there are not many eating places in the Island,.  more »
  • With Lord Shiva as the main deity, Umananda Temple is a serene getaway for nature lovers in Guwahati. Perched atop the mountain Bhasmakuta and surrounded by the turbulent waters of River Brahmaputra.....  more »

  • Umananda is the smallest river island in the world. The place is very beautiful as it is located in the middle of almighty Brahmaputra. The temple here is to worship Shiva basically. Many tourists come here to see the temple. Besides the temple, people like me go there to enjoy the vibe. It feels very good to sit on the rocks and touching the water by your feet. A smooth breeze makes the time more beautiful. But now a days, sitting on the rocks, touching the water have been banned as some accidents have occurred there. So you might be missing that heavenly feel.
  • Umananda temple is situated in Peacock island, in the midst of Brahmaputra river. Its the smallest river island in the world as well. Though its a religious place, its a tourist attraction being the smallest river island.It occupies a very smaller area but one can enjoy the scenic beauty sitting there on the rocky island. The boat to Island costs only 50 rupees per head
