The Kamakhya Temple has a very interesting story of its origin. It is said that the mythical womb of goddess is supposedly placed in the sanctum of the temple and there is month in a year when the water of the Brahmaputra River turns red. The Kamakhya Temple in Assam is one of the most venerated Shakti shrines in India, and is regarded as one of the Shakti Peethas associated with the legend of Shiva and Daksha Yagna. The temple was destroyed in the early 16th century, and then rebuilt in the 17th century by King Nara Narayana, of Cooch Bihar. Images of the builder and related inscriptions are seen in the temple.
