About the walk

The district of Dhubri, the gateway of western Assam, had a glorious past as it was an important administrative seat of colonial rule. It was also a meeting point of different ethnic groups which mingled together and formed the unique cultural heritage and historical background of the state. The growth of blended culture in this region, particularly in language, art and religion, was due to the continuous process of assimilation of the various ethnicities, castes and creeds of the locals and the populace that had migrated.

Today, the remains of the colonial era in the historical and cultural buildings reflect the splendid heritage and culture of the town. The opulent heritage buildings and majestic structures greet you at every nook and corner. The rich history of the town oozes out of the structures and famous sites, depicting tales of time and trade of the centre of excellence of a bygone era.

In this walk, we shall go through the many historical sites in the town of Dhubri, such as, Victoria Park (1905), Brahmo Mandir (1875), Armenian Church (circa 1765), Gurudwara (16th century), DC Bungalow (1879), Meteorological Tower (circa 1765), Panch Pir Dargah (1662), Post Office (1879), Circuit House (1879), Treasury Office (1765), Tennis Court (1879), SP Bungalow (1879), Municipality Building (1883), Daak Bungalow (1879), and DFO Bungalow (1879), where you can marvel over the astonishing architecture and history of the town.
