TEMPLES IN SIBSAGAR DISTRICT

The deity of the temple was discovered during the reign of Pratap Singh (17th century) who built a temple to enshrine the deity. In the 18th century, the flood waters of the Brahmaputra river caused great damage to the temple. Therefore, King Rajesvar Singh (1751-1769 A.D.) built the present temple on the top of a hill. 

The Ahom sovereigns called the presiding deity 'Bar Bopai' (the Great Father) and paid great reverence to the deity. We are told that the King used to take his meal only after receiving the nirmalya of the daily puja at this temple. Arrangements had been made for carrying the nirmalya daily to the King through a special carrier appointed for the purpose.

The Siva temple at Negriting is a very attractive shrine. Built on a grand scale, the temple in its vertical elevation consists of the basement, the garbhagriha, and the curvilinear Sikhara with trident at the top.
