One of the most famous artefacts in the Satra is the royal robe that belonged to the Ahom king, Swargadeo Gadadhar Singha. Along with the gold robe, there are other things belonging to the Ahom king such as a gold umbrella. Both these precious things are preserved here.
For travelling to Benganaati Satra, tourists need to take the ferry from Nimati Ghat in Jorhat to reach Majuli.
