Numaligarh

Numaligarh is a town in the Golaghat district of Assam, India. It is situated at a distance of 32 km from Golaghat town. Historically it is associated with both Kachari and Ahom kingdom. After Ahom king Suhungmung annexed Numaligarh, he started to live with Kachari princess Numali and built a "garh" (fortification) around the place where they lived. However, only remains of that "garh" is found now. This town came into limelight because of the Numalgarh Refinery.


Place of Interest / Things to do
Deoparbat

Deoparbat is a hillock housing stone carvings and ruins of temples from the 8th and 9th centuries. The main Shiva temple here was destroyed in a major earthquake in 1897. The archaeological site adjoins the Deopahar Reserve Forest and is close to Garampani Wildlife Sanctuary on National Highway 39. The stone temple was erected on a monolithic floor. The temple has a big ceiling slab engraved with a large lotus bearing a relief of Vidyadhara holding a scarf and a necklace by both hands. The vast range of sculptured stone blocks were curved out of Precambrian rocks. 


The Butterfly Valley

The sprawling Butterfly Valley covers around 30 acres of land surrounded by small hillocks and is located adjacent to the enchanting Deopahar hills. The Valley is also replete with varied flora and fauna and houses about 60,000 plants endemic to North East India. At least 75 species of butterflies belonging to five broad butterfly families have been listed so far. A large number of host plants for different butterfly species dot the valley. A laboratory is also housed inside the premises where entomologists carry out their observation studies and other research work. A moth pavilion is an added attraction where visitors get an opportunity to know the distinction between a moth and a butterfly.

Rubber & Coffee Plantation

Watching rubber plantations is not less than delight for nature-lovers. Lush greenery is sprawling over the large area just close to Kaziranga in Karbi Anglong and is just because of rubber plantation.
