History of Dibrugarh

Dibrugarh lies in the upper reaches of Assam, about 435 km away from Guwahati, in the south west. Located on the banks of the River Brahmaputra, Dibrugarh, along with Sibsagar and Tinsukia accounts for almost 50% of the total tea production of Assam. In fact, Dibrugarh is sometimes referred to as the Tea City of India, because of the high production of tea in the region. Dibrugarh has had a fluctuating relationship with the River Brahmaputra. Back in 1950, the river changed its course because of the Medog Earthquake, resulting in widespread destruction in the city. The earthquake and the resulting flood destroyed almost 75% of the city of Dibrugarh.

The city has recovered from the aftermath since then, and people have come to accept the mercurial nature of the river while staying in its shadow.

People and Culture of Dibrugarh

Dibrugarh, apart from being one of the largest producers of tea in the country, is also known for its oil and natural gas reserves. In fact, tea production, along with Oil and Natural Gas exploration forms the core of the economic activities in the region. Apart from that, some other prevalent industries in the region are plywood factories and the cottage industries. Dibrugarh is especially well known for the production of Assam Silk.

Nice place but be cautious to make your own arrangements. Don't drink outside water. Bargain for travelling. Better to speak in hindi. Limited hotels offer good food and beverages. Best travel is by air or taxi.

"Awesome destination"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted May 18, 2016
Dibrugarh is well known for its mesmerizing Tea gardens, the dreamy weather and some of the beautiful sights that will steal your heart. It is a city which will give you both peace of mind, places to chill out and shop till your heart fill.

You can never miss the beautiful Dibrugarh University: the crowd & the environment are its attractions and also Nahor Tree.

Go for Ahom Moidam and AMC (Assam Medical college) if you want to check-out for some heritage place. AMC founded in Nov-1947 which has a very reputed history of its establishment.

Want to chill out?? Go for Khanikar Park, DU Park the sunset evenings spent there will make you fall in love.

Your foodie?? Of course there are cozy fast food restaurants that will give unforgetable yummy taste.

Okay!!! You love to shop you get traditional to smart western outfits( not compulsorily branded) just as you need. Never ever miss the BHUTIA Market :) :)

Now it also have places for your spiritual needs, Go for Jagganath Mandir, Jalan Mandir, and to know more about Dibrugarh never miss the Tea Estates, interiors of it and the brahmaputra river banks.

But this is only about the Dibrugarh City, if you ask me about Dibrugarh District there are hell lot more things that you can never miss (Duliajan Oil city, Phakial Mandir Naharkatia, evergreen forest, etc)

Spring and winters are the best seasons to visit Dibrugarh (October-April). I recommend you to carry one umbrella and few more extra clothes as the climate is very humid.

Airport, trains(Rajdhani, intercity etc) are available. If you are coming to Guwahati first you might love to take day road trip on Day super (preferably ASTC, Raj India, green valley etc) to Dibrugarh. Road Trip from Guwahati - Dibrugarh will give you the glance of the beauty of Assam & also the Kaziranga National Park.

PS: Most of the people drink water direct from well/tank/tubewell. Best place to get purest water.

"Beautiful tea gardens-Dibrugarh"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Nov 20, 2015
Dibrugarh is a city in the upper part of Assam. The city is quite spread out and well maintained. There is nothing great about the place but the beauty of the place lies in its uniqueness. The Brahmaputra river is a few kilometres from Dibrugarh. The bank of River is a place to visit. Also, Dibrugarh is full of tea gardens around.

Actually it was an official work to Dibrugarh, so not able to go for sightseeing. Dibrugarh is a well developed city. Transportation & roads in the city are good.

Dibrugarh is very nice place and people all over the world visit the place due to its natural beauty. The places like Radha Krishna Mandir of Dibrugarh is the natural place to see the peace of love. The garden here is really awesome. The must visit places are the Veni Garden, Lake City and Assam Medical College. The main attraction is the bank of river Brahmaputra. Food like momos and snacks made by local peoples is popular here. I was busy capturing the natural beauty.
