Malinithan is an archaeological site that combines the remains of a first-century Hindu house on the north bank of the Brahmaputra River in the Indian subcontinent in Arunachal Pradesh. Archaeological investigations show that this sanctuary was used in stone during the Hindu occupation of the region. It was used by the Cushite kings in the fourteenth century. This was the time when the Chutian rulers had begun to place Brahmins in different parts of their empire giving them worldly awards. Durga / Kechai-Khaiti is acknowledged to be an intermediate deity who was venerated in the low plain with his Shakthi structure. The location of the restricted stream named Akashiganga as the site of the Tamreswari and Bura-Buri Temple of Sadiya shows that the entrance of the houses was once made in the sanctuary.


The site was discovered in British times and from the time of its inception locally made pieces. According to the image, it is said that when Krishna wanted to marry Rukmini, the daughter of King Bhishmaka of Vidarbha, snapped it before his marriage to Shishupala. Krishna and Rukmini then made the journey from Bhishmakanagar to Dwarka, stopping at Malinithan on their way, where they were guests of Shiva and Durga, who were converts. Parvati, Shiva’s fiancée, invites his guests vigorously, offering them ingredients made from flowers from his plants. Krishna was so impressed by the splendor and fragrance of flowers that he stuck to Parvati as Malini, which signifies “the construction of the birthplace”, and has since been the color known as Malinithan. In one myth it is said that a picture of a woman without a head, which was unveiled during an absence, spoke to Malini who was the author of Shiva. This statue of the goddess Durga found here by another is called “Pupane”, which is the name of the divine mother.


Archeological found in the site of Durga’s models, Shiva linga and the bull, Shiva mountain, point to some Shiva religious people. In light of this, environmentalists have gathered that a group of Shaktians were stolen from the region. It was one of three communities driving Shaktism; the other two places are called Bhaghawati, the mother goddess in the city of Goghoga in North Lakhimpur, and Harithith in Dhakuakhana in the west of Tamresari in the east. Of all the archaeological evidence in the site, archaeologists have determined that this sanctuary had a place in the thirteenth century.

Archaeological excavations revealed a highly speculative area and cut a 2.4-foot-wide sanctuary, models of deities and creatures, flower arrangements, damaged parts and boards. Four models of two lions have been found at the four foundations of the sanctuary.

Among the figures found in Malinthan, the five hit rock formations are Indra mounted on his mountain Airavata, Kartikeya riding a peacock, Surya (Sun) riding a cart, and Ganesha riding a mouse, and Nandi’s big bull. Based on Maithuna’s sexual models found here in various contexts it is acknowledged that tantricism was won here as a celebration of the ill-luck of the inborn who held the “maternal head as a fertility influence”.

The sanctuary is cut out of stone, the type of house known as Asmamayai. Iron icons found in the remains of a stone house that they took after they were discovered in the Sadiya area of ​​Sadiya indicate that they were used by the same people.
