Nagaon holds the distinction of being Assam's most populous district and one of the largest district in the area. It is also famously known to be the 'Rice bowl of Assam' and is rich in paddy. This district happens to be rich in wildlife too, as a part of this area is covered by the world famous Kaziranga National Park, which makes Nagaon a tourist magnet that is flocked with tourists all year round. Apart from being rich in flora and fauna along with having strong agricultural roots, Nagaon also has a lot to offer to tourists with many other natural and human-made attractions.
Nagaon is unique in more ways than one. The site is the birthplace of Mahapurush Srimanta Sankardeva, the great founder of Vaishnavism religion, artist, dramatist, author, etc.; but is also home to the rare one-horned rhinoceros. It would thus in no way be an overstatement to say that from religion to fauna, Nagaon is a tourist's paradise.
Other noteworthy attractions that you will find in Nagaon include the Laokhowa Wildlife Sanctuary; the Champawati Kunda falls in Chapanala, and Kaliabor, which is a famous historical place. It was the scene of several battles against the Muslim invaders. Silghat is a vital and picturesque river port lying on the South bank of the mighty Brahmaputra and has several temples that enthral visitors with their beauty and magnificent architecture. Nagaon is also especially famous for its two 'satras', the Narowa Satra and the Salaguri Satra, which are believed to have been founded by Srimanta Sankardeva himself in 1494 after he returned from his first pilgrimage.
