Asvakranta Temple Introduction

The temple of Asvakranta, situated in North Gauhati, is an important Vaisnava shrine. It is just opposite to Gauhati and a visitor can go there by motor boats that are available at Suklesvar Ghat (Gauhati).

Asvakranta means ‘ascended by horses’. It is here that Sri Krishna camped with his army before he defeated and killed Naraka. We have already referred to the Naraka legend and how he was placed as the kings of Pragjyotisa by Visnu. At first Naraka was pious and ruled his country righteously. But soon he became friendly with Bana, king of Sonitpur, a Saivite king who had become all powerful by propitiating Siva.
