Tourist Places In And Around Dibrugarh - A Trip To The Dibrugarh Tea Gardens

Assam Tea is known worldwide. And when it is Assam tea, one cannot go past cities like Dibrugarh, Tinksukia and Sibsagar. In fact, these three places account for more than 50% of the tea produced in the state. Dibrugarh is also called the ‘Tea City of India’. There are many tea gardens around the city that date back to the British time. Dibrugarh tourism is incomplete without these tea gardens.

Boon And Bane Of The Mighty Brahmaputra On Dibrugarh

Brahmaputra river is known to be one of the fiercest rivers in India. Every year it comes down heavily from the Himalayas, flooding cities and forest covers alike. Dibrugarh too sees its fair share of the Brahmaputra's outrageous flow. Nevertheless, it is the river that enhances the beauty of the city and makes it tranquil when in quiet motion.

Dibrugarh hasn’t escaped the wrath of the tumultuous river and has repeatedly witnessed floods devastating major portions of the city.

Religious Tour To The Dibrugarh Satras

Dibrugarh Satras are integral aspects of Dibrugarh tourism. Cultural heritages left behind by the Ahom kings are the socio-cultural as well as religious institutions called Satras. A major highlight of Dibrugarh tourism are these Satras.

A visit to Dibrugarh is considered incomplete without paying a visit to Dinjoy Satra, Koli Aai Thaan and Dehing Satra. While Koli Aai Thaan is considered to be the oldest ‘thaan’ in Assam, both Dinjoy Satra and Dehing Satra are potent with history and legacy. Today these Satras have become embodiments of the rich cultural heritage of Assam.
