The Bhairabi Temple is dedicated to Goddess Durga. Situated in the outskirts of Tezpur, the temple overlooks the majestic Kolia Bhomora Bridge running across the River Brahmaputra. The Bhairabi Temple is located close to the ruins of the Bamuni Hills.
It is believed that Princess Usha, the daughter of Banasura used to regularly come here to pray to Goddess Durga. This signifies that the temple is very old. Animal sacrifice is still practiced in the temple. To reach the Bhairabi Temple, devotees and tourists have a long path of staircase. The temple is situated on top of a small hillock. Currently, the temple is managed by the office of the District Deputy Commissioner.
Travelling to the Bhairabi Temple is not difficult. Tourists can either book a vehicle or ride on one of the buses travelling on the route. The Bhairabi Temple lies in the south of the city.
