Not the biggest[edit]

For some reason a myth has arised that Majuli is the "biggest river island in the world". Not even close, for example:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maraj%C3%B3

has an area 40 times bigger than Majuli, and here is another one 20 times larger in area:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bananal_Island

Moreover, Majuli is not completely surrounded by water, with a land border to its north, unlike the Bananal Island which is entirely surrounded by a river.

Also see the list of some known river islands here:

Source for size?[edit]

There seems to be some confusion over the size of the island; previous versions, most recent edit and external websites all have different opinions as to its size and ordinal ranking among river islands. Can someone please find an authoritative source for the size and cite it? Demi T/C 16:07, 6 December 2005 (UTC)

Bananal Island, in Brazil, is larger than Majuli. Marajó Island, also in Brazil, is larger than Majuli as well, but it is a mixed fluvial and ocean island - even though it's wikipedia article calls it a fluvial island. Marajó being considered a fluvial island, then the two largest are Marajó and Bananal. I don't know if Majuli would be the next largest. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.151.180.144 (talk) 11:36, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

When I searched Majuli landscape website and found it is an area of 580,000 sq km. including Majuli and neighbouring districts. Actually, One may notice the land in Google map is connected with Lakhimpur district on the northern bank of Brahmaputra. The fact is many course of rivulets Map make a river island from both sides. The island is historically connected with Jorhat district of southern bank of Brahmaputra and the main transportation is ferry service to the island. In Sept. 2016 Majuli declared as district.

Googlemaps view differs from the map in the article[edit]

If you search Google maps, Majuli appears not to be an island. Could someone with more knowledge please do some deeper research? Grandma Roses (talk) 22:47, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

Kindly refer to the website given above.
