A place initially created to keep elephants is now in ruins. The king of this place is said to have asked his soldiers to bring around a 1000 elephants that he had captured here in order to celebrate the inauguration of a new city under his rule. Despite the unfortunate history behind this place, this attraction is still worth a visit.
When this city was first established, the king called it Hatigarh. Soon, however, the king realised that his desire of capturing 1000 elephants and putting them in here is not quite conceivable. As a result, he changed the name of this city to “Gazpur” even though the elephants weren’t kept here, the name comes from the Assamese word, “Gaz” which refers to “elephants”. Today, this place has very few elephants rather none at all. Yet, Gazpur is known for its history with elephants and is definitely an attraction to visit when in Jorhat.
