Every city in India has its own flavour. Similarly, Assam also has its own flavour. Today we are going to talk about Dibrugarh in Assam, which is called ‘The Tea City of India’. The city is very beautiful due to its geographical location and weather situated on the banks of the river Brahmaputra. There are many important tourist places for walking here, due to which everyone is drawn to this side.
Before twelve to fourteen years, hardly any train could be found in this place. Today Dibrugarh Rajdhani Express leaves New Delhi Railway Station five days a week and takes you there on the third day. This place has a pleasant climate throughout the year. You can enjoy ‘Nature Walk’ along with tea drinking in this city famous for tea gardens and natural beauty.
History of Dibrugarh
The city of Dibrugarh gets its name from the word Dibrumukh in which ‘Dibru’ is the name of the river and ‘Mukh’ means mouth. The name of this city has been named Ti-phao in the Buranji historical works of Ahom language, which means ‘heaven-place’, so this place can also be called the paradise of the Northeast.
