Tezpur Tourism Assam

Cole Park, Tezpur Assam

Tezpur is a wonderful tourist destination located on the north bank of river Brahmaputra. There are several legends and mythological stories attached to this city. Earlier it was known as 'Sonitpur'. The word Tezpur was coined from the Sanskrit words 'Teza', meaning 'blood' and 'Pura' meaning 'town or city'. Even today the love story of Anirudha and Usha echoes in the city. Anirudha was the grandson of Krishna and Usha was the daughter of Banasura(a devil).

The fantastic city welcomes you to delve into its scenic beauty – the mind boggling views of the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas and the hills of Arunachal Pradesh.
