Situated in the Himalayan foothills, Sadiya is one of the sub-divisional headquarters of Tinsukia. It sits at the confluence of three three major rivers, Dihing (Tsangpo in Tibet), Dibang and Lohit that create the mighty Brahmaputra. It has an elevation of about 400 feet and stands on a grassy plain. Sadiya is a small town but is home to extraordinary scenic beauty and a rich historical background. The flower 'satful' is also a major feature of this city.
The vast plains and the white sand adorning the banks of the rivers make it a beautiful tourist destination. A boat or ferry ride on the Brahmaputra can be an enchanting experience. Sadiya is mainly famous as the place of origin of the Sutiya dynasty and for its Tameshwari temple. It is a Shakti temple that can be accessed by taking ferry rides from the Dhola Ghat. It is an important site for archaeologists owing to the beautiful architecture. The roof of the temple is made entirely of copper ('tam' in Assamese). Hence, the name. There are many other Shaivik temples where Deori tribes used to worship in ancient times. Two major ones are Burha-Burhi Thaan and Boiragi Thaan.
