Destinations | Dist. Wise | Dhemaji
 
   

One of the remotest districts of Assam, Dhemaji became a full fledged district on 14th October 1989 when it was split from Lakhimpur district. With an area of 3237 sq kms, the district is bounded by the hilly ranges of Arunachal Pradesh in the north and east, Lakhimpur district in the west and the river Brahmaputra in the south.
The name "Dhemaji" is believed to have been derived from a combination of two Assamese words "dhal" meaning flood and "dhemali" meaning play.
