Bamuni Pahar, Tezpur

Home » Destinations » Tezpur » Attractions » Bamuni Pahar

Bamuni Pahar or the Bamuni Hills is located a few kilometres away from Tezpur. The place is famous for the sculptural ruins that date back to the 9th and 10 century A.D. These sculptural ruins are found all over the hill. A close inspection of the sculptures show their strong resemblance to the Gupta period architecture. The Bamuni Pahar is also known as the Usha Pahar (named after Princess Usha).

The most popular and famous ruined sculpture found on the Bamuni Hills is the Da Parbatia which probably belonged to the 4th Century A.D. There are a few ruined walls around the hill which have been carved out with stone. These stone carvings are known for their creative refinement. One of the interesting carvings found on one of the walls is the cross-shaped bracket lintel that is decorated with Kirtimukha panels and has the drawings of 10 incarnations of Lord Vishnu.
