About Goalpara District :
The present Goalpara district was created in the year 1983 with two sub-divisions viz Goalpara Sadar sub-division and North Salmara Civil sub-division, carved out from erstwhile Goalpara district. However, the same was again reconstituted in the year 1989 with only Sadar sub-division of Goalpara and the Civil sub-division of North Salmara was taken away in that year and merged with newly created Bongaigaon district. At present the district of Goalpara is situated entirely on the south bank of the river Brahmaputra.The district covers an area of 1,911 sq. km. and is bounded by West and East Garo Hill districts of the state of Meghalaya on the south and Kamrup district on the East, Dhubri district on the West and mighty river Brahmaputra all along the North. In the district, 90% of the population depend their livelihood on agricultureThe principal agriculture produce are Paddy, Jute, Green and Black Gram and Potato etc. Located on the foot hills of Meghalaya and on the Bank of the mighty river Brahmaputra , Goalpara district is endowed with its scenic beautyThe evergreen forests on low hills with its undulating landscape, if harnessed properly, will attract tourists of all hue to this district.

Surya Pahar :Sri Suryapahar (26o 5/ N , 90 o 42/ E ), a site famous for archeological remains, lies in the Goalpara district. Composed of 7 (Seven) peaks, spanning over an area of approx. 1400 acres (583.33 Hec) the site also gets the name of “Hateli”, which is located about 13 Kms away from Goalpara town, on the western side. Because of its archeological importance, Archeological Survey of India (ASI) has protected this site of National Importance. It is also a historical site famous for its terracotta, wonderful and exquisite pieces of rock-cut sculpture depicting deities of Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. This combination is a rare phenomenon.
One can get a panoramic view of the Brahmaputra and the confluence of the Dudhnoi and Krishnai rivers near Ujir’s Char village in the northern direction from the Suryapahar. In this site innumerable statues and engraving of idols, Shivalings caressed by streams, Stupas- some as tall as four feet and Caves are found. The ASI started excavation in the site from 1984 and unearthed rock- Votive Stupas on a giant single rock, lord Vishnu with twelve hands, Goddess Durga (Mahisasuramardini), rock cut panel of Vishnu, Hari Hara, Lord Shiva, Jain Tirthankaras, Panchyatna Temple Complex, Water Reservoirs, existence of well constructed pucca structures among others. The excavated sites are believed to be of Post-Gupta Era. As per popular belief, there exist one less than a lakh Shivalingas in total in Surya Pahar, which tragically fails it to claim the place as Kashidham! However Suryapahar may be considered as the second Kashidham.
An ancient Hanuman Temple exists near Surya Pahar and contains ancient idols.A great Mela “Sri Sri Surya Mela”is held every January in the Suryapahar site for three days, starting on Maghi Purnima day. Thousands of devotees and visitors throng there during the period. Visitors from other places including foreigners, visit this famous archeological site.
According to tradition, the name Sri Suryapahar was derived from the image of Surya Devata (The Sun-God).It is the only site in the entire North-Eastern region where people and the monarchs of the ages belonging to different faiths had perhaps enjoyed a common platform for worshipping their own Gods and Goddesses and Avatars.
Dadan Hillock :Dadan hill having a Shiva Temple on its top, was established by DADAN, one of the General of King Bana of Sonitpur. There are some mythological stories reflecting various events on the foot hills of Dadan on the bank of river Dariduri.
It is believed that the General, a devotee of Lord Shiva, killed a wild elephant with his sword on this spot which came often and disturbed him in his meditation, now may be witnessed in the form of a stone (resembling an elephant) which is lying on the bank of river Dariduri. Thousands of people specially from the tribal, Rabha community gather on the above mentioned spot to worship Lord Shiva , once a year specially in the month of February. The area is thickly forested with rivers and waterfalls inhabited by people of the Rabha community. Besides the religious aspect the entire area is rich in scenic beauty.
The turbulent rivers, the mystic blue hills, the savage terrains and serene countryside beckon the adventures.
The hills of Goalpara district particularly Rakhyashini, Tukreswary. are attractive for those who would love trekking and rock climbing. The monkey of Trukreswari hills who are never daunted even by arms and uniforms would offer funny pranks to the visitors to the temple and the hill.One should not be surprised seeing them pose elegantly before a camera. These hills are also unique in structure to provide an idea and experience to the learners of rock climbing.
Majar – Sharif of Pir Saheb :The MAJAR – SHARIF of Sufi Saint Shah Sayed Nasiruddin Kaderi, commonly known as “BAGDADI” is situated at Jaleswar-Katarihara , 60 km away from Goalpara Town by road. The saint is said to have come from Bagdad, capital of Iraq and therefore he was called Bagdadi.
On the 8th day of Assamese calendar month “Magh” coinciding with 21st January, each year, thousands of people cutting across religious faiths from different parts of Assam and West Bengal congregate at this Majar sharif to participate in the “UROS MUBARAK” – death anniversary of the spiritual leader and seek his blessings.
Pir Majhar :The “MAJHAR” (tomb) of Hazarat Sayed Abul Kasem Kharasani, situated at the heart of Goalpara town, is a place much revered by the people of all religious faiths.

Since then, the Satra has been continuing upholding vashnavite culture. Regular “NAM PRASANGA” etc. are held systematically with the observance of the religious festivals every year.
One of the very important aspects of the Satra is that the Satra authority has preserved the “ASTHI” (a piece of bone) of Sri Manta Sankardeva which is exhibited in the Satra campus during Sankar Jayanti period i.e., in the month of Sukla Dasami (during September- October)
Sri Sri Chaitanya Gaudiya Math :Sri Sri Chaitanya Gaudiya Math was established at Goalpara in the year 1969 in order to protect, preserve and expand Sri Krishna Chaitanya culture in the area on a plot of land at the center of the town.
