Majuli Island

286 times

Best approached via Jorhat, Majuli is the world's largest inhabited river island. It is also the focal point of Vaishnava Culture. Majuli is renowned for its important Satras (Vaishnava Monastries). For the Assamese, this place is particularly revered as Sankardeva, the 16th century leader of Vaishnava revivalism, established the Satras. Majuli is home to the Mishing Tribe who migrated from Arunachal. They are Assam's only riverine tribal community and they make some astoundingly beautiful shawls and blankets which are also used as wall hangings.
