This is the oldest temple built by the Mlecha king who established the capital of Kamrupa at Harupeswar. The temple of Harupeswar is a temple dedicated to Siva. It is 10 km to the north of Sonitpur (Tezpur). A linga was found by a cultivator (Hallowa) while he was ploughing in the field. A temple was constructed initially on this linga and the name Haleswar comes from Hallowa. Later, the Ahom King Rudra Singha constructed the temple in 1705 AD.
