Have you ever heard of a village that has more
temples than houses?
Sualkuchi is one. It is one village that is
mainly known for its temples, although it counts for something as its indigenes
are very religious. Sidheswar Devalaya is the most popular temple, Its name is
derived from its location as it can be found along the Sidheswari Hill towards
Devoted Hindu’s visit the temple very frequently
in honour of the great Lord Shiva, the Hindu deity and Shiba Singha. It was
renovated sometime in the past by the king Ahom.
There are also lots of other individuals that
visit the temple to pay their respect to Lord Shiva especially during Bole Bom,
a festival that is celebrated with pomp.
