Lachit Borphukan’s Maidam, named after the famous Ahom General, Lachit Borphukan is one of the most interesting attractions in Jorhat. This maidam has a memorial stone which was constructed in the memory of the 16th-century warrior of this city. It is often recommended to visit this attraction in order to pay tribute to this great soul and is definitely worth a visit.
Borphukan was known to be a brave fighter and skilled warrior. During the battle over Guwahati at Saraighat in 1671, he was able to defeat the Mughals under the command of Ramsingh and was commemorated for his bravery. However, soon after, Borphukan passed away due to a serious health problem. As a result, in order to honour the efforts made by Borphukan during the war against the Mughals, Swargadeo Udayaditya constructed this maidam in 1672 where Lachit Borphukan’s remains were eventually laid. This maidam is still well-decorated and reminds everyone of the Ahom rule in Jorhat.
