Hayagriva Madhava Temple


The Hayagriva Madhava Temple is one of the famous temples located in the region. This temple has an idol of Lord Vishnu that is similar to the idol of Lord Jagannath in Puri. Lord Buddha is believed to have attained Nirvana at this religious site and is visited by numerous Buddhists, Bhutiyas and Hindus.

This temple was reconstructed by the Koch king Raghudev in 1543 after Muslim invaders destroyed it. Visitors have to climb a long fleet of stairs to reach the temple. A relatively small temple lies in the vicinity. The major attraction of this shrine is the festival of Holi that is celebrated on a grand scale.
