About Umananda Island:
Umananda Temple is a Shiva temple located at the Peacock Island in the middle of river Brahmaputra. It was built by the Ahom King Gadadhar Singha (1681–1696), who was a devout Shaivaite. It is known as smallest inhabited riverine island in the world. Legend has it that Lord Shiva lived here much to the ananda or joy of his consort Uma, another name for Parvati. Hence the name ‘Umananda’.
With a total area of 352 square kilometres (136 square miles), “Majuli” is the world’s largest river island and it attracts tourists from all over the world. It is an island in the Brahmaputra River, Assam and in 2016 it became the first island to be made a district in India. The temple is small and welcoming. We visited this temple on MahaShivratri having taken the ferry to the temple. This is situated on the Peacock Island on the Brahmaputra river.
