TEMPLES IN TEZPUR DISTRICT

Bana was a great devotee of Siva and is said to have constructed the Mahabhairava temple. Bana had many sons and one daughter named Usha who was secretly married by Aniruddha, the grandson of Krishna. Aniruddha was then captured but was subsequently released by Krishna, who defeated Bana in a great battle fought
on the site of what is now known as the Tezpur bil.

Even in historical times that Tezpur was the centre of cultural activity is seen by the ruins of a temple discovered at Dah Parbatiya to the west of the present town. Professor R. D. Banerji who explored the region gives the following description about the ruins:

"Close to the ' modem civil station of Tezpur is a small village of Dah Parbatiya which possesses the unique distinction of having within its limits the ruins of the oldest temple in Assam. The ruins consist of the remains of a brick temple of Siva, of the Ahom period, erected upon the ruins of a stone temple of the later Guptaperiod, Circa sixth century A.D.
