Visiting The Abode Of Kamakhya, The Menstruating Goddess

The famed Kamakhya temple in Guwahati was the first pit-stop on our recent journey to North-East India.

I have been fascinated by this temple ever since I read about it a few years ago. I had heard that this is the temple of the ‘menstruating goddess’, the goddess who bleeds once every year and that people consider her menstrual blood sacred enough to dip their handkerchiefs in it and carry them home, as tokens of good luck. This temple was, definitely, one of the spots I had eagerly wanted to visit, as we planned out this trip to the North East.
