Etymology[edit] Dibrugarh
Dibrugarh
derived its name from Dibarumukh (as a renowned encampment of Ahoms during the Ahom-Chutiya War). The name Dibru evolved either from Dibaru river or from the Dimasa word dibru meaning 'blister'; garh means "fort". Both dibru and Dibaru are Dimasa words. The Dimasas add the prefix "Di-" (which means "water") wherever there is small stream, a river, or a large river in a town or city; for example, Diphu
Diphu
('white-water'), Dimapur
Dimapur
('city with great river'), etc. When the British came to this region, they constructed a fort on the bank of the river Dibaru. Therefore, this might be considered as the source of the name Dibrugarh.

History[edit] The British arrived in Assam
Assam
in the year 1826, following the Yandaboo Accord. They selected Dibrugarh
Dibrugarh
as an administrative and commercial center in Upper Assam, making Dibrugarh
Dibrugarh
a hub of activity in this region of north-eastern India. In the year 1842, Dibrugarh
Dibrugarh
was announced as the headquarters of Lakhimpur District. During World War II, the town was the principal military base and was used as a transit camp for the evacuees from Burma. In 1971 the Dibrugarh
Dibrugarh
Sub-Division itself became a full-fledged district. Later, the Tinsukia Sub-Division separated as a District in 1989 from Dibrugarh
Dibrugarh
District. Today Dibrugarh
Dibrugarh
is a separate district, with the District Headquarters in Dibrugarh. Geography[edit] It is situated in the easternmost part of Assam. Topography[edit] Buridihing, a tributary of Brahmaputra, divides the district from east-to-west. Buridihing flows through Naharkatia and Khowang, and at a later stage in its course, Buridihing acts as a divider between Dibrugarh
Dibrugarh
and Sivasagar
Sivasagar
districts. The region is flat with a gradual slope from the East Arunachal
Arunachal
hills to the west. The soil of the district is mostly fertile, alluvial soil.

It is the gateway to the three tea-producing districts of Tinsukia, Dibrugarh, and Sivasagar. These three areas account for approximately 50% of India's Assam
Assam
tea crop, and this gives Dibrugarh
Dibrugarh
its rightly earned sobriquet as the "Tea City of India". Oil and timber are the other two big industries in and around Dibrugarh. In 1950, the Medog earthquake, measuring over 8.6 on the Richter Scale, changed the course of the Brahmaputra
Brahmaputra
River, and this caused the destruction of more than three-quarters of the town. It has since then been rebuilt, though the River is a constant reminder to the people who live in its shadow, of its turbulence and all-encompassing journey to the sea. Climate[edit] Dibrugarh
Dibrugarh
has a humid subtropical climate (Köppen climate classification Cwa) with extremely wet summers and relatively dry winters.

Vaishnavite Culture - Xatras[edit] More information on Satra (Ekasarana Dharma)

Dehing Namti Satra Around 8 miles from the town of Naharkatia, on the banks of river Disang (under Sasoni mouza), is the age old Dehing Namti Satra of Assam. The satra was established by Binandashyam Gohain and was initially situated between the roads of Hologuri and Sariyahtoli, in Dibrugarh. The current location of one of the chief sings of the satra is at Namti, in Nazira.

Dinjoy Satra This satra was first established by a prime devotee of Gopal Atadev, Srimanta Aniruddha Dev, in a village of North Lakhimpur. It was later shifted to Khutiaputa, around the time when t

he Moamoria rebellion took place. During this period, Astabhuj Gosain was the head of the satra. But after his demise, this religious seat remained vacant for 14 years. Later on, Pitambar Chandra Dev was made the head. The satra fell into trouble once again at the time of Burmese invasion of India. It was finally brought to the present site of Dinjan, about 5 km from the township of Chabua, after peace returned.

Moderkhat Satra Moderkhat Satra is actually an extension of the Dinjoy Satra and was established in the Moderkhat area of the Dibrugarh
Dibrugarh
district. Chandrakantadev was the founder of this monastery. He was the brother of Sidanandadeb Dinjoy, who was the head priest of the Dinjoy Satra of Assam.

Garpara Satra Garpara satra is older than the Dinjoy Satra itself and is situated in Rohmoria mouza, Assam. The head priest of this satra was Narimaider. In recent times, there has been a proposal of shifting the satra to a new safer location, because of soil erosion at the present site.

Dehing Satra The ruins that are seen on the banks of the Dehing River under Larua mouza in present Dibrugarh, was a very famous satra during the rule of the Ahom king Rajeswar Singha. During the famous Moamoria revolution, the satra received royal support from Ahom King Rajeswar Singha and also from a number of other kings like Lakhi Singha and Gaurinath Singha.

Dols and Maidams[edit]

Raidangia Dol Raidangia Dol is found in the Kalakhuwa area of Laruah mauza, under the Barbaruah Dev Block of Assam. Established in 700 AD, by Swargodeo Pramatta Singha, the place was originally dedicated to the worship of Lord Vishnu. Later on, it became famous as Shiva dol. The dol contains relics of the powerful Ahom Kingdom. Initially, 24 statues were found engraved on the walls of the temple, but now only 14 of them are to be found. There is a large pond situated just adjacent to the temple. It is said that the dol, along with the pond and 200 pura, was given as a dowry when Swargadeo Pramatta Singha married his sister to Raidnogia Barua.[53]

Barbarua Maidam At a distance of 14 km to the south of Dibrugarh, just adjacent to the NH37, there are two ancient graveyards that were raised to honour two officials of the Ahom Dynasty. Historian Sarbananda Rajkumar believes that these two maidams or graveyards were erected for Bura Dihinigia Barbarua and Deka Dihingia Barbarua. Apart from these, there are several other smaller maidams at the same site, which were constructed to honour other soldiers of the same regime.

Sarumechlow and Bormechow Maidam These two maidams are found in the Lengeri mouza locality of Dibrugarh city and are said to be the graveyards of Sarumechlow and Bormechow, who were the queens of King Sukhampha Khura (1552–1611) of the Ahom regime.

Lekai Chetia Maidam This maidam is dedicated to Lekai Chetia, an officer of the Ahom Kingdom, during the term of Swargadeo Pratapsingha. Located in the Sessa area, near Mankata road of the Dibrugarh
Dibrugarh
district, the maidam has now become a revered spot in Assam.

Bahikhowa Maidam The Bahikhowa Maidam is found in the Khowang Tea Estate area of Dibrugarh. This graveyard is dedicated to Bahikhowa Dasarath Dowerah. He was the Chief of the Army staff of Ahoms, during the reign of Swargodeo Rajeswar Singha. Apart from this huge maidam, there are several other smaller maidams located in the nearby places, but all of them are in ruins now.
