Know the truth of Agnigarh

The historical and Hindu mythical site Agnigarh, also known as the love spot of the North East,” is situated in Tezpur town of the Sonitpur district, on the north bank of the mighty river Brahmaputra. Agnigarh combines the Assamese words Agni, which means fire, and Garh, which indicates a place surrounded by walls. The place is a lush hillock that was once a citadel and is now a breathtaking hill garden with groomed sloping lawns and numerous exquisitely crafted statues scattered throughout.

It was constructed by Bana (also known as Banasura), an asura with a thousand arms in Hindu mythology, and the son of Bali. Banasura was an intense and dreadful asura. Everyone was terrified of him, including the ruler of the earth and the Devas in heaven. Nevertheless, Bana was one of Shiva’s most devoted followers.
