Located at Majgaon in North Guwahati, Ashwaklanta temple has a rich history of its own. It was built during the reign of Swargadeo Siva Singha on the ruins of 9 th-12th century stone relics and as such gives a wonderful insight into a long era. There are two temples on site and both of them are dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The presence of two Lord Vishnu idols gives the temple a unique identity of its own. As per mythology, Lord Krishna's horses got tired and rested here, thus giving this place its name.

Ahom King Shiva Singha had established this temple in 1720 AD. According to Hindu mythology, when Lord Krishna was searching for Narakasur, his horses became tired and he stopped in this spot to give them rest. This is why the temple is called Aswaklanta temple as it means tired horses.
