After 2-Year Hiatus, Ambubachi Mela has returned. The Ambubachi festival will be celebrated from June 22 to June 26 this year. However, priests are concerned about Kamakhya temple becoming a Covid-19 hotspot.

The priests had suggested to the administration that instead of making arrangements for the mega-accommodations camps, the devotees can pray from their homes and prasad will be sent to their homes by courier services. Despite Covid-19, the temple is visited by sadhus in huge numbers on various occasions. In 2019, the 25 lakhs devotees thronged the festival which was the largest in history. However, Covid protocols will be followed. 

And police has enforced some restrictions on near roads of temple to avoid traffic jam - 

From 22-06-2022 to 26-06-2022, no vehicles shall be allowed to enter from Kamakhya foothill towards Kamakhya Temple except the Ferry Car, vehicles associated with essential services and few vehicles of Kamakhya temple and local residents authorized by District Administration. 

No inter-district and long-distance buses (including the buses operating under ASTC) shall be allowed to ply on D.G. Road, M.G. Road and T.R. Phukan Road from 22-06-2022 to 26-06-2022.

No goods carrying heavy, medium or small commercial vehicles shall be allowed to ply on DG Road and MG Road from 22.06.2022 to 26.06.2022. However, the three-wheelers commercial goods carrying vehicles shall be allowed to ply from 12 midnight to 6 AM only. 4) The vehicles coming from Bharalumukh side towards Kamakhya gate will drop the devotees near Kamakhya gate and move towards Adabari and will park at Boripara Field or Adabari Bus Stand.

The vehicles coming from the Maligaon side towards the Kamakhya gate will drop the devotees near the Kamakhya gate and will move towards Bharalumukh and the vehicles will park at Sonaram Field. 6) No vehicles shall be allowed to ply on the newly constructed road from Pandu Temple Ghat to Kamakhya Trinath Temple.
