About Hajo

Hajo is a place of religious importance located on the banks of the Brahmaputra River in Guwahati. Followers of different religions like Hinduism, Islam, and Buddhism flock to this location, which houses various temples, mosques and other prayer places. The Hayagriva Mahadeva Temple is a prime attraction here. This temple is significantly important for the followers of Hinduism and Buddhism. An image of Lord Vishnu that closely resembles the one at Jagannath Temple in Puri in Orissa rests within this temple, and according to Buddhist legend, Lord Buddha attained nirvana here. During the mid-16th century, the temple was reconstructed and revived by the Koch king Raghudev, restored to its former glory. The Hayagriva Mahadeva Temple is accessible through a long stone stairway, at the foot of which is a small pond, where a very old turtle still lives. A Muslim shrine by the name of Powa-Mecca is also housed within Hajo. Constructed by Mir Lutufullah-i-Shiraji in 1657, it is believed that the foundation of the mosque contains some part of the earth that was brought here from the holy city of Mecca.
