Bamuni Hills

Situated on the right bank of the mighty Brahmaputra river, the Bamuni Hills attract tourists with their awe-inspiring sculptural ruins and stone carvings, which date back to the 9th and 10th centuries. According to the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), the style of the excavations hints that they were raised during the Gupta period. The stone carvings on the walls of the Bamuni Hills also make for an interesting sight and attract visitors with their artistic beauty. A popular belief hints that the ruins might have belonged to a temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu.

Legend has it that Lord Krishna's nephew, Aniruddha, was imprisoned here after he fell in love with the daughter of Banasura, who disapproved of their relationship.
