This is what I tasted at Dol Govind temple in North Guwahati... Krishna was offered a rich kheer - rice payasam and a salad of sprouted green moong lentils, soaked gram, chopped coconut, bananas and pomegranate seeds. This salt and sugar-free salad was delicious.

Kamakhya Devi temple on Neelachal Hill on the outskirts of Guwahati in Assam celebrates the creative force Shakti. Kamakhya Devi is named so as she is a giver of desired wishes. The deity is ageless. Three natural stones depicting Kali, Lakshmi and Saraswati are in an underground chamber beneath this dome. The temple’s architecture is unique, especially the dome. It is unlike the North Indian tapering Shikhara. And certainly unlike any South Indian Gopuram style temple shikhara :-)
