Lying on the outskirts of the city, Hajo is among the few places in the country where ancient ritualistic practices are still followed. Once a centre of Buddhism, Hajo is known as the place where the founder of Tibetan Buddhism, Padmasambhava, breathed his last. It is home to a number of temples and sacred places, including the Hayagriva Madhava Mandir. Situated on Monikut Hill, the temple is one of the most visited points in Hajo and was built by King Raghudeva Narayan of the Koch dynasty in 1583. Tourists can also visit the Lord Ganesha temple built during the rule of Ahom king Pramatta Singha in 1744 AD. Visiting Hajo gives tourists a chance to know about the history and rich heritage of Assam.
