The holy place for the Assamese community, Hatibaruah Namghar Temple is the main place of worship for the natives. The word “Namghar” literally translates to Prayer House and is highly precious to the Ekasarana sect of Hinduism. When in Jorhat, taking out time to visit this temple can be a great option.
Namghar temple is not only a place of worship but it also functions as a meeting house for congregations. The structure involves assembly halls which are usually rectangular building with a hip roof raised on pillars. The west end of the hall is called Manikut which refers to the jewel hut and it houses idols called Guru Asana. As for the prayers, devotees sit facing each other in North-South direction emphasising on the Bhakat or worshiper. The prayers are led by Naam Loguwa who faces the idol. This temple also serves as a place of cultural and sectional activities like Bhaona (dance). All in all, Hatibaruah Namghar Temple is not only a sacred but also a utilitarian place for people in this region, something that can be observed and learned from.
