Babathaan

This ancient Siva Temple is just three kilometers away from Numaligarh Tini Ali on the way to Golaghat. It was set up in the last part of the 19th century, the temple was on the Deopahar. Some say it was a separate hillock top on which this temple was built. It is believed that as the old priest Narayan Kandoli was too old to climb up the hillock he brought the idol with due honour resulting in the present shrine.

A noble British Manager, built the temple and decorated it with some old sculptures of an ancient temple such as flying Apsaras, Gajathan etc. But due to lack of proper maintenance, these were also destroyed; currently, one can see a newly constructed temple here. The specialty of this temple is that 'The Linga Murty' is on the ground while most other ancient Siva Linga are placed under the ground; a probable influence of the Kachari Kingdom.
