The Supreme Court on Wednesday said the Kamakhya Temple in Assam is not maintained effectively, saying there cannot be any compromise on hygiene.

A bench of Justices Ajay Rastogi and C T Ravikumar was hearing a matter relating to the maintenance of the temple.

The Senior advocate – Rajeev Dhavan, appearing for the temple, submitted that certain people have written letters claiming that the committees are not maintaining hygiene.

He told the court that expert committees are taking care of this temple. The apex court deferred the matter for hearing in January 2023 to enable a possible amicable solution between the parties.

The apex court in December 2021 disposed of a contempt plea by the elected Dolois (priest) representing members of Bordeuri Samaj of Kamakhya Devalaya, alleging misappropriation of funds by the Kamakhya Debutter Board.

Nestled amongst the picturesque Nilachal hill atop Guwahati city, the famed Kamakhya temple is the centre of Shakti cult.
