TEMPLES IN KAMRUP DISTRICT

As a free rendering has it, the city of Apunarbhava was beautified with blue, red wid white palaces, defended by weapons and surrounded by moats. Day and night there was the uproar of festivities. It was full of temples, parks and lakes. Various kinds of lotuses were in the lakes where were seen swans sporting. The women of the city were very handsome with large eyes; their necks were adorned with diverse ornaments.

Their glow and the music of their anklets ever charmed the mind of the populace. Here dwelt Janardana Hayagriva. It is a place where one can get rid of re births even if he enjoys all the denied things.  There is another reference to the killing of a demon named Hayagriva near about Visvanatha; The Lord of the world (Jagatpita) is said to have fought with Hayagriva and after having killed him migrated to Manikuta.

However, it is not clear whether the Lord of the world refers to Visnu or Siva. The context appears to point to Siva as the ‘killer of Hayagriva.29 The Harivamsa (the Visnu Parva, Ch. 64) records that Sri Krishna after having killed Naraka, Nisunda and Hayagriva went to Maniparvata where Naraka kept confined the daughters of the Gandharvas and Asura chiefs.
