The Ugratara Temple is one of the most sacred and important pilgrimage centres of Assam. Dedicated to Goddess Ugra Tara (considered as another form of Goddess Parvati), the temple was constructed by King Shiva Singh of the Ahom Kingdom in 1725. On the east side of the temple, you will find a water tank called the Jor Pukhuri. The upper section of the temple suffered considerable damage due to an earthquake. Since then, it has undergone several renovation and modification attempts. During the festival of Navaratri, pilgrims from far and wide come to the temple to offer their prayers and participate in the festivities.
