The Narua Sattra or Sri Sri Basudev Than which is originally known as Laumura Satra is a very well known temple of the northeastern state of Assam in India and it is located in the Dhakuakhana of North Lakhimpur district of Assam. The Satra was established in the 17th century as Laumura Satra by Damodar Ata who was the grandson of Srimanta Sankara Deva but according to the local people of the place, the statue of Basudev was made by Rukmani for her desire to marry him. The name Basudev is related to the Assamese word for lord Vishnu. The Narua Sattra is one of the ancient temples of Assam and originally in North Lakhimpur, it is situated in the small area between Balahi Sampara and Saupara, the plot of this satra was originally donated by Chutia king Satyanarayan in the year of 1392 AD for Bishnu Puja. To reach the Sri Sri Basudev Than one need to walk in between the green forest since it is situated in an amidst lush greenery and also covered by dense forest. The original temple was actually built in the 14th-15th century during the rule of Chutia Kings Lakshminarayan and Satyanarayan but in the 17th century, it was shifted to the present location by Damodar Ata the grandson of Sankardeva. After the death of Damodar Ata in the year 1585, Ramakanta Ata who was the son of Damodar Ata became the Adhikar of the Basudev Than. The Basudev Than covers the land of about 200 Bighas which are full of dense forest and in earlier days many statues of Vishnu and other historical materials were found nearby villages and all types of statues were deposited to the Than by the villagers and the villagers started celebrating a festival called Ramdhemali Gai where they mentioned the name of all the statues and they sacrifice many animals on this occasion where people get fruitful results. To reach the Sri Sri Basudev Than one need to travel via road, train or by a plane. The nearest airport is Lilabari airport of North Lakhimpur which is almost 5 kilometres away from the district headquarter and if you are travelling by a train one needs to take Arunachal Express which operates between Lakhimpur and Guwahati via Rangapara, Rangia and etc. Since Lakhimpur is very well connected by road to all the major cities of Assam hence one can travel by road to reach the destination.
