Dehing Namti Satra is located on the banks of Disang River in Sasoni Mouza and is around 13 km from Naharkatiya town. It was found by Binandashyam Gohain who had a follower named Lachit Borphukan. It is one of the famous Satras in Assam and the tomb is dedicated to all royal courtiers of the Ahom dynasty. It is one of the main Satra of the followers of the Bhakti Saints Mahapurusha Srimanta Sankardeva and Mahapurusha Madhavadeva.

The ancient relics of the Ahom times can be seen here in the center and the greenery around allows the tourists to breath in some fresh air away from the city. The history behind the Satra is fascinating and makes it a must visit while in town. The Satra structure carries the names of the deceased royal courtiers. To honor the courtiers, Dehing Namti was built. The exterior and interior walls of this Satra hold beautiful carvings and enhance the beauty of the mausoleum.

Dehing Namti Satra also serves as a picnic destination for many. It’s calm and serene environment offers great outing time for the locals and students. There is no entry fee here and people can visit round the year. However avoid going during monsoons.

Dumping the trash isn’t permitted here. No one is allowed to leave behind the leftover or waste. A heavy fine is imposed on the offenders.
