MAJULI SATRAS

Of the many Satras in the Majuli Island, the Auniati Satra, Dakhinpat Satra, Garamur Satra and KamalabariSatra are noteworthy.

The Auniati Satra was founded by Niranjanadeva a distinguished disciple of Vamshigopal. Niranianadeva's purity of character and devotion to God ' drew admiration even from the Ahom King Jayadhvaj Singh (1648-1663 A.D) who himself became the saint's disciple and endowed the Satra with suitable land grants for the maintenance of the monks and the monastery.

Dakhinpat is another well-known Satra in the Majuli Island established by Vanamalideva, another disciple of Vamshigopal. Vanamalideva was very strong in faith and devotion, He was honoured and treated with much respect by the reigning Ahom monarch Jayadhvaj Singh who made liberal gifts to the Satra.
