Bamuni Hills, Tezpur, Assam – For a Placid Evening
As we were already staying in Jorhat for the visits to Majuli Island and Gibbon Wildlife Sanctuary, we decided to extend our stay to one more day to make a visit to the Bamuni Hills in Tezpur. The hills are located closely to Jorhat and had a good connectivity. Therefore there were not many hassles to reach at the Bamuni Hills via city bus.
Bamuni Hills are famous for the artistic beauty it portrays. During the 9th and 10th centuries Bamuni was quite famous for its art and sculptures. We could see the cross shaped bracket that displays the image of Lord Vishnu and his ten incarnations. Located in the fringes of Tezpur, Bamuni Hills represent the ruins from the Gupta era. The Gupta Era art from is conserved near the hills which is visited by large numbers of tourists. While the palace has a lot of things where the historical facts during the Gupta era can be drawn, it serves a decent place for picnics and get together.
The most popular ruins of the Bamuni Hills are the Da Parbatia that date long back to the 4th century. It was quite amazing to learn about the things which had such a rich and long history. The stone carvings made on the walls represent he creative refinement of the people during those periods. The solid history of the Kingdom of that era and the type of culture they followed can be hinted from the sculptures and images drawn on the walls.
As the Bamuni Hills is located in the fringes of Tezpur, it provides a candid environment for the people to enjoy a quality time with friends and family. Being a fond lover of photography, I clicked some memorable pictures with my children and my wife. The natural surrounding that prevailed in the Bamuni Hills was indeed beautiful. As currently the place is more known to be a picnic place, there were several people other than us who came there to enjoy a quality time. Moreover the place is not just visited by the denizens of Assam or people from other states of India, foreign visitors can also be seen there in large numbers.
