The annual Ambubachi Mela will begin in earnest at Kamakhya Temple in Guwahati from June 22 to 26, after a two-year gap.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ambubachi Mela has not been commemorated joyously in the last two years.

Kabindra Prasad Sarma, the head priest of the Kamakhya temple, stated that the Ambubachi Mela will be celebrated in a joyous manner this year after a two-year gap due to COVID-19.

“Pravritti of the Mela will be performed at 8-15 pm on June 22 and the main door of the temple will be closed from the Pravritti. The main door of the temple will remain close on June 23, 24 and 25 and only rituals will be performed. The door will be opened for devotees on June 26. In the last two years, the Ambubachi Mela was not observed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are preparing to observe the mela this year,” said Kabindra Prasad Sarma.

This year’s Ambubachi Mela will be observed according to COVID-19 protocols, informed Kabindra Prasad Sarma.

Meanwhile, Assam Minister Bimal Bora met with senior tourism department officials on Monday in Guwahati to discuss preparations for the festival.

The minister also instructed officials to take all necessary steps to ensure the event’s success.
