Basistha Muni Temple alias Basistha Ashram is situated on Sadhya Chal
Hill about 12km from Guwahati. It is believed to be the Hermitage of Basistha
Muni (Vasistha), a famous saint and scholar and the author of the famous
Epic Ramayana. The ashram located in a picturesque background with three
mountain streams Sandhya, Lalita and Kanta flowing nearby is an important
place of pilgrimage. It is believed that a bath in these streams increases
the life span of a person. The grave of Basistha muni is within the temple,
where the mortal in his stone form rests in peace.
