  • Billeswar Temple


    "With a history that spans more than 500 years, the Billeswar Temple is situated at Belsor Village near Nalbari. The Billeswar Temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna, even though a Shiva Linga was said to have been found at this spot. According to legends, a priest once had a cow that refused to be milked. On following the cow, the priest found that the cow gave milk to a bush of 'virina,' a kind of grass. This incident came to the notice of the region's king; he got the place dug up and found a Shiva Linga at that spot. A temple was erected at that spot named Birreswar, which was later changed to Billeswar, now known as Belsor. The temple was destroyed in a natural calamity once and was rebuilt by an Ahom king and Lakshmi Singha."

  • Hari Mandir


    "The Hari Mandir, now called the Golden Temple, is a living symbol of the spiritual and historical traditions of the Sikhs. The tank and the temple have been a source of inspiration to the Sikh community ever since its foundation. It is evident from the Sikh chronicles that the Gurus exhorted their followers to accept all Sikh centers as places of pilgrimage. As Sri Hari Mandir Sahib was the first important holy shrine, it became, as the center of inspiration and action and the most significant achievement of the Gurus, the chief place of pilgrimage for the Sikhs.
