Bangalpukhari, Jorhat Overview

Bangalpukhari is a celebrated water tank located in the South of Jorhat City. Created in 1739, this water tank is untouched by the people of this city due to the myth that it will bring bad omens. This famous water reservoir is located near Na-Ali and even though it is not used, it has become quite a popular tourist attraction in Jorhat.

The story of Bangalpukhari dates back to when it was built after the slaughter of the Ahom governor, Badan Barphukan who was infamous for torturing innocent Assamese and Burmese soldiers. Rupali Singh Bhangal, the man who killed Barphukan was awarded money for this act of bravery, which he used to build this tank. Hence, people of Jorhat do not use this tank since it was practically built in the “blood of a man”.
