Tilinga Mandir

This Siva Temple, famous as "Tilinga Mandir', is nestled at Bordubi, a small town in Tinsukia District of Assam. It is 7 kms from the oil township of Duliajan. Tilinga means "bell" in Assamese and Mandir means "temple". This bell temple is as spiritually and mystically strong as any other temple in Assam. There are hundreds and thousands of bells of all sizes in bronze, brass, copper and aluminium that are tied to the big peepal tree and on its various branches. There are more than a hundred Siva tridents carelessly speared into the sand here and there. Most of them are packed together in one place, a few feet away from the mystical tree. According to the priest of the Tilinga Mandir, these tridents were left by the ascetic devotees of Lord Siva who rest under the tree while on their pilgrimage. As they rested under this Peepal tree, they feel a unique spiritual presence and they left their tridents behind as a testament to this mysterious encounter.
