Agnigarh hill is a tourist spot as name suggests it is a historic place. This is ticketed place and Brick paved steps are made to climb up to top of hill. Beautiful green view can be observed. As described in the information you will not find in real any historical or Archaeological items. The hill is surrounded by Brahmputra river in side which enhance hillic panoramic view. For time pass you can visit. There is tea shop on top but apart from that you will not find anything.

Being included in our tour itinerary by our travel agent, we visited Mahabhirab temple immediately after checking in the hotel Fern Residency, on 3rd November evening but were disappointed to see its poor maintenance. The temple is on a hillock and one has to climb about 50 steps. There is no parking place and no entry fee also. its main deity is Lord Shiva and the Shivling installed here is known to be one of the largest in India. It attracts lakhs of devotees during Shivaratri function and is managed by a committee constituted by the Assam government. A mythological story is that this temple was built by demon king Banasur who was a great devotee of Lord Shiva. The other story is that about 1000 years back it was built by local rulers. The original structure made from stones was demolished by Muslim invaders and it has been built several times over the years. Further destruction is said to have taken place due to the earth quake in 1897 and then it was renovated by a great saint Nag Baba using concrete and mortar. Of course, with the stone pillars found here the later story seems to be true.It was definitely a temple of great significance and still revered by the people as such but it deserves more care. Over the years some additional temples of Lord Hanuman and Lord Ganesh have also been added here but no thought appears to have been given to create necessary amenities for public conveniences despite government management and a large open area around the temple. Photography of the temple is prohibited, so only distant shots can be taken.

This 100+ year old garden was commonly known as Cole Park and is the most beautiful and well maintained park in Tezpur, the City of Blood. It is located near the banks of the Brahmaputra and is pleasant to go for walks. The lake inside along with the childrens water park is nice.

This is the longest bridge I have ever come across. It was completed in 1987 and is 3.105 meters long across the mighty Brahmaputra and connects Koliabor and Tezpur. It is the lifelife of many cities and villages in Upper Assam and Arunanchal Pradesh.
Watching the sun set over the mighty Brahmaputra from the bridge will always be unforgettable..

Prasanti Lodge is looks like typical government lodge but surprisingly service and hospitality is very good. Hotel's staff is very co operative and always helpful. Rooms are big and clean also. Hotel is having small dinning hall.Kitchen services r based on the demand only. Food preparation is good felt like eating at home.
overall it is the best option to stay with families and friends.

I went to Bamuni Hills. The most popular and famous ruined sculpture found on the Bamuni Hills is the Da Parbatia which probably belonged to the 4th Century A.D. There are a few ruined walls around the hill which have been carved out with stone. It is great place to go.

While driving down from Guwahati to Tezpur on way to Itanagar I noticed the beautiful town of Dhekiajuli. It is having a large number of tea estates and in winters one can see snow capped lovely peaks of Himalayas from the road side. Photographing beautiful tea estates from road side and lovely snow capped peaks can be a fulfilling experience.

south-west of Kalaigaon,Mangaldai
Liked the location, with the river Brahmaputra flowing by the side and the altar dedicated to Dr. Bhupen Hazarika, making him a Demi- God in the midst of us humans.
Disliked the roads leading to it as it is very broken and makes the journey a bit difficult.
