Agni Garh, Tezpur

1 km east along the Brahmaputra River is the hill of Agni Garh, a famous battlefield featured in the epic Mahabharata which dates back to hundreds of years BC. The Mahabharata tells the story behind the Kurukshetra war and describes the fates of two royal families: the Kauravas and the Pandavas. Agni Garh, meaning rampart surrounded by fire, is one of the most beautiful places in Tezpur. According to legend King Bana imprisoned his only daughter Princess Usha there in a palace surrounded by a rampart of fire to keep her from her lover Prince Anirudha, the grandson of Lord Krishna. Facing the Brahmaputra the hillock provides a panoramic view of both Tezpur and the river.
