World's Largest River Island - Majuli
Situated in the Northeast part of India, Majauli, a river island on the Brahmaputra river, is an important natural landmark.
It is a heaven for bird watchers, history lovers, and for people looking to delve into local culture and the history of Neo Vaishnavite movement. The Neo Vaishnavism religious movement has impacted the lives of locals for the last five decades, and one can peep into the history and culture of Assam and Ahom Dynasty through the institutional centres called Satra. These centres are a treasure house for classical dance & music, art, culture, dramatic performances, and learning. Here potters' villages still practise the age-old tradition of the barter system.
Why should you travel to Majuli?
Majuli has been the cultural capital and the cradle of Assamese civilization for the past 500 years. The satras setup preserve antiques like weapons, utensils, jewellery and other items of cultural significance. The potter’s village in Salmora is the highlight of Majuli. Here, they do not use potters’ wheel to make earthen pots but fingers and palms only. These artisans are keeping the old tradition of the barter trade live to date.
