Bangalpukhari Overview

Ranked 6 of 36 sightseeing in Jorhat

Bangalpukhari is a famous water tank that lies in the southern part of Jorhat City, near the Na-ali. The tank was constructed by Rupsingh Bangal in 1739, after killing the Badan Barphukan, an Ahom governor. Badan Barphukan captured Burmese soldiers and also tortured the people of Assam.

In the month of Sravana of Saka, Rupsingh Bangal killed Badan Barphukan, when he was going for bath. For this act of bravery, Rupsingh Bangal was awarded with money, which he utilised for the construction of this tank. The natives of the region do not look at the water of this tank, as they believe it will bring bad luck because it was dug from the money received for killing a human being.
