All the reviews and blogs singing praises about Majuli tempted us to go well out of our way to see the beauty. Alas! We were highly disappointed with the visit. Apart from the fact that the island may not exist some 20 years down the line due to erosion, there seems to be no other reason to visit it. Do... More

the satra is very much like others. what i liked most was the monks's performance. i'm not sure if you have to arrange it beforehand, because we were a group, and everything with prearranged for us.

Sattra is one of the main attraction of Majuli island. Uttar Kamlabari Sattra is one among the top 3 sattras. This is Brahmacharya Satrra so we get the glimpse of the monks lifestyle too. A peaceful place with a rich history in the backdrop.

Majuli is the famous largest riverine island and the core of Assamese Neo-Vaishnavism, located in the middle of the Brahmaputra river with glittering cultural treasures, is making elaborate preparations to...
