Main purpose of visit is to have darshan of Lord Umanand, one of the Jyothirlingams.

Kindly suggest other temples to have darshan within these two days and best budget hotel in guwahati.

Any other suggestion apart from the above is also requested.

2.Dol Gobinda temple

3.Sri Balaji temple

4.Basista temple

5.Ugratara temple

6.Naba Graha temple

7.Sai Baba mandir

These are just few of them.There are many more nearby Guwahati.

You will find many budget hotels at Paltan Bazar area.

If you can extend your trip by one more days you can visit Shiva Dol and Joy Dol at Sivasagar.

Guwahati Tour

I went to Guwahati as per my schedule. I landed in Guwahati Railway station. There are two gates in this Railway Station. One appears to be very nice. Another gate is maintained in very bad shape. But from here only lot of hotels, restaurants are available. I stayed in a lodge very near to the Railway Station. The lodge was mderate and cost also found to be cheap. A road from the Railway Station, takes out to main road. On left side of the road, tourist union office is available. Lot of taxi, cab drivers will appraoch you for various journies. Bargain with them. You will get a good cab. We found only two veg restaurants. One is near Nepal road. This road straight from the Railway Station. Food is very costly. But very Good. Another one is at the corner of the road from the railway station or near the union office.

In guwahati, most important place is Bhimashankar. This temple is available at around 20 kms from Railway Station. Moorthi is amidst a small river. This river is not bramaputhira. Taxi drivers may cheat. Be careful.

Another temple kamakya. People will stay ticket for Rs 500.00. All are false. No ticket. Every one has to come through Queue. But the queue movers very fast. One has to have darshan.

Another Nabagraha temple. Here the temple is not the one as usual. Just under a dome. Nine sivalingas with one big sivalingam at the centre. No light. Only oil lamp. No pooja. Lot of pandits available. Yet they wll just watch you. You can do pooja on your own.

Perumal temple. Here Tirupathi pandits perform poojas. Prasadam exellent. You can ask one more cup and have it.

Journey was excellent. Must visit guwahati.

Hi,

I would land in Guwahati airport at about 21:25 hrs and have a train to catch from Guwahati station at 11:35.The distance between them seems to be anything around 25 k.m and I will roughly have 2 hrs in hand.

Please let me know the quickest option to reach the railway station/Paltan Bazar from airport.

During the day time, the cheapest option is to take the Assam State Transport Corporation operated AC bus from the Airport to Paltan Bazar. However, during that time of night, you can take shared cabs from outside the Airport, or hire an exclusive Ola/Uber, which are available in plenty. The road from Airport to Guwahati Railway station is mostly free from jams at that time, and it should take you 30-40 minutes at max to reach the Railway station, once you leave the airport.

One small tip is that, in case you go for shared cabs, the driver may lock your luggage in the boot space & ask you to wait, while they go search for other passengers. In that case, it sometimes takes them up to 20-30 minutes until all four passengers are found, and they don't leave unless all 4 pax r on board. You may keep that in mind, given you have a cramped schedule.

In case any further info is required, feel free to ask.

I have drove many times from maligaon to railway station in about 30 mins late at night. Add 20-25 minutes max more from airport. You should be able to reach within time limit. Pre book the ola, guwahati has more ola than uber, keep cash, they sometimes cancel if you have ola money.
