Nameri Wildlife Sanctuary - The Nameri
National Park covers an area of 200 sq. kms.
Apart from a sizeable population of endangered
species like White Winged Duck, Nameri National
Park can boast of the Khasi hill terrain or
the Assam reefed turtle once believed to be
extinct. Besides these, elephants, deer, tiger,
black bear, birds and numerous species of orchids
can be seen.
- Majuli is the world's biggest riverine
island, which is nestled in the lap of the Brahmaputra
river. This picturesque place is quite famous
for being the centre of the Vaishnava ‘Satra’
culture, founded by the Assamese poet, composer
and philosopher Sri Sankaradev in the 15th century.
Today, only 22 satras are preserved here, which
function as centres for Assamese Art. Of these,
some notable ones are: Bengenaati Satra, Kamalabari
Satra, Dakhinpat Satra, Anuiati Satra, Gaamurh
Satra and Shamaguri Satra.
