Wadagokgre, West Garo Hills


Wadagokgre is a fascinating destination in West Garo Hills, for people who are interested in History and Civilization. The Archaeological Survey of India had taken up an excavation in the area, and found out that it was one of the biggest cities and also a religious centre, that was cast out of the river Brahmaputra in the fourth century A.D.

This excavation has brought into light that the Wadagokgre township was sprawling with Buddhism and Hinduism, and also a combination of both, which is widely practiced in the area.

This ancient township was located on the bank of the river Brahmaputra, which happened to flow from that area almost 2000 years back. The entire town was well fortified, and tanks as well as temples built of burnt bricks were also found inside the premises. But to everyone's amazement, not a single bone was found in the entire area.

One can reach Wadagokgre by booking a tourist vehicle from Tura.
