Basudeb Devalay Overview

Ranked 9 of 9 sightseeing in Nalbari

The temple was built in the period of 1718-1744 AD, by the Ahom king, Sib Singha. According to legends, once a fisherman was fishing in a pond of the region and he was not able to remove his fishing net for seven days. On the seventh day, a local Gada Kahar had a dream of Lord Basudeb, asking to be released from the fishing net. On reaching the pond, he found two large stones in the fishing net.

When King Sib Singha heard of his dream, he came to the spot and tried to remove the stones from their place, but failed; instead, he decided to build a temple there. In 1759, Rajeshwar Singha, brother of Sib Singha donated 64 Bighas of land to the temple. The temple is famous for festivals like Douljatra, Janmasthami and Sivaratri.
