TEMPLES IN SIBSAGAR DISTRICT

THE NEGRITING TEMPLE

The temple of Negriting or Negheriting is situated in the Sibsagar district near the Assam Trunk Road, some seventeen miles from Jorhat and about fourteen miles from Golaghat. There is no regular bus service to the place and one has to reach the place from Golaghat by taxi. The temple is dedicated to Siva.

Built on a small hillock, the temple is surrounded by tea gardens in the front as well as to the left and -wide open country to the right extending to the Brahmaputra River.   The origin of this temple is traced to one Rishi (sage) by name Aurvya Muni. In the Puranic age, we are told, there was a stone temple on the same site of the present temple, the presiding deity of which was worshipped by the sage.

The sage struck upon the idea of making this place a second Kasi and collected for this purpose a good number of Siva Lingas which are now said to be all buried in a tract of low land called in these days the 'Sital Pathar'. Sital is a corrupted form of the word Sivatal.
