Bhomoraguri inscription facts?[edit]

The famous Bhomoraguri inscription where references to the intention of a bridge cross the Brahmaputra near Tezpur exists in the Chitralekha Udyan (formerly known as Cole Park). However, I have come across two different references as to who put the inscription.

  1. At the bottom of http://sonitpur.nic.in/archaeology.htm (Additional Information section) it states "The rock inscription lying on the Bhomoraguri hill near the Kolia Bhomora Bridge has not been recorded in the list of the protected monuments of Sonitpur district. The inscription states the construction of a rampart by Ahom King Pratap Sinha (1603-41 A.D.) after defeating the Mughals in the Saka year 1538. This is the first Assamese inscription (i.e. the language of the inscription is Assamese). So far discovered in Assam till now."
  2. At the bottom of http://www.assamonnet.org/index.php?article=siteseeing (click on Tezpur at the bottom to show the relevant section) it states "Bhomoraguri - The mammoth stone inscription made by the Ahom General Kalia Bhomora Borphukan, who planned to construct a bridge over Brahmaputra. The Kolia Bhomora Bridge is a 3.015 km bridge over the Brahmaputra River that connects Tezpur on the North bank with Nagaon on the south bank. This is one of the longest bridge in India and stands unrivalled in its grandeur."

Who actually made the inscription or plan the bridge - Ahom King Pratap Sinha or Ahom General Kalia Bhomora Borphukan? Can someone verify the fact please?-Deepraj | Talk 14:52, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

Gobbledygook[edit]

A giant Leap towards the development of the North-East India. The most striking feature of the picturesque North Eastern region, the hills and rivers, is the all-pervasive presence of the majestic Brahmaputra. This masculine river not only splits the state of Assam along its length but also cuts off the seven sister states of the North-East from the rest of the country.
