Morigaon District

Morigaon District is situated in the Brahmaputra Valley of Assam, covering an area of 1,704 sq km. It is bounded by the mighty Brahmaputra in the north, Karbi Anglong District in the south, Nagaon District in the east and Kamrup District in the west. The main portion is an alluvial plain, criss-crossed with numerous rivers and waterways and dotted with many beels (large bodies of water) and marshes.

The culture and tradition of the Assamese people are inexorably linked with handloom weaving. Small scale industries have a vast potential for self-employment and economic development. The average annual rainfall is 1,600 mm. The maximum temperature is felt during June-July, and the minimum occurs during January.

Sunaikuchi, Khulahat, and Bura Mayong are the three Reserve forests. Patekibori Than, Pabitora Wildlife Sanctuary, Sitajakhala, Deosal, Kachasila Hill, and a Dry Fish Market (largest in Asia) are the main places of interest.
