Tin Jhanda temple is located on the top of a hill in Birubari, a locality in Guwahati, Assam. From there one can see a bird’s eye view of the entire city, Gandhi mandap and the Brahmaputra river. A statue of Lord Shiva and goddess Parvati is established here in this temple, hence it is also known as Hara Gauri temple. Apart from it, a Ganesha statue is also there at the front. There is only one temple priest there in the premises. During Shivaratri, lot of devotees visit this place. Generally, the place is isolated as few people visit there. However, if you are looking for peace and solitude and enjoy beautiful scenery, you should visit it. The temple closes at evening, so you should plan accordingly. It is advised not to stay there after dark as the place becomes deserted after evening.
How to reach: There are two ways to reach the temple. You can walk from the base of the hill to the top using GPS. The road is very steep and it will be tough if you are old or physically unfit. Auto rickshaws generally do not go uphill, but if have a two-wheeler or a vehicle, you can drive up to the steps of the temple. From there you have to walk at least 300 steps to reach the temple.
