The Bhairabi Temple is located on the outskirts Tezpur in Assam, India.HistoryThe Goddess Bhairavi is worshipped here as She is one of the Mahavidyas of Ma Durga Devi. It is a very important Shakti Peeth of Assam. The backdrop of the temple is a view looking towards the Kolia Bhomora Setu across the Brahmaputra River. The temple site is also locally known Bhairabi Devalaya. Legend has it that Usha (daughter of mighty Asura King Banasura) regularly came here for the worshipping of the Goddess. About a couple of kilometres away lie the Bamuni Hills where one can view the ruins of the palace that stood many centuries ago. The art work on stone carvings that were used within the structure are from the 9th century. Likewise, the 400-year-old Bhairabi temple has tilted slightly and a nearby building suffered damage to the west and south sides of the second and third stories and cracked the pillars and an unhinged roof due to an earthquake. Following the damage, religious ceremonies or daily prayers have come to a halt.ManagementThe temple is now managed by the government through the office of the District Deputy Commissioner and the Temple belongs to the family of the Borthakur's of Tezpur . There are sacrificial offerings of goats, ducks, pigeons, etc. that still occurs regularly here.The Durga Puja celebration is performed in a very grand way in this temple.
