Sukreswar temple is located in the town, plenty of transport is available. Temple is quite clean and neatly maintained. Temple is Peaceful, and divine. Brahmaputra river is just behind the temple and plenty of ferries ply from this Sukreswar ghat to the opposite bank. One can watch beautiful sunset from this place.
