Tilinga Mandir – the Temple of Bells

The Tilinga Mandir is situated 50-60 km away from the town of Tinsukia, in a small town called Bordubi. ‘Tilinga’ means “bell” in Assamese, and each of these bells in the temple represent a wish fulfilled. There are hundreds of bells in bronze, brass, copper and aluminum, each telling a story of faith and belief. The temple itself has three bell-shaped domes each smaller than the other so that when ones looks from the front, it looks like a single bell. This temple is recorded in the Limca book of records for having the largest collection of bells of all types and sizes.
