Dhubri District

Dhubri District is the south-western boundary of Assam. Situated at 30 meters above sea level on average, Dhubri is bounded by Bangladesh in the west, Goalpara and Bongaigaon districts in the east, Kokrajhar District in the north, and the state of Meghalaya in the south.

The landscape is plain with patches of small hillocks such as Tokorabandha, Dudhnath, Chandardinga, Boukumari, Boropahar, and Chakrashila. River Brahmaputra flows from east to west. Many of its tributaries such as Champabati, Gourang, Gangadhar, Tipkai, Sankosh, Silai, and Jinjiram run through this district. Assamese and Bengali languages are spoken in the urban area, while the local language used is Goalporia.

Dhubri is one of the the most densely populated districts in India with a density of 584 persons per sq km. Agriculture is the main source of revenue for majority of the people. Paddy, mustard, rape, wheat, and jute are the main crops. Dhubri is famous for handicrafts such as terracotta crafts, cane and bamboo crafts, weaving, and jute crafts. Dhubri has great scenic beauty - the banks of river Brahmaputra with its lush green fields, blue hills, and hillocks are a feast to the eyes of the beholder. Major attractions are the Chakrashila Wildlife Sanctuary, Tegbahadur Gurdwara, Rangamati Mosque, Mahamaya Dham and the royal palaces.
