Bhogpur Satra

Sri Sri Bhogpur Satra is one of the oldest Vaisnavite Sattras of Assam. Situated at the heart of Majuli, near the Tuni river which is known as Basistha Ganga, the former name of the location was Dinapura after the name of Dinanath Bharali Baruah, a reputed gentry belonging to the bureaucratic services of the Ahom rulers of Assam. When the great saint poet and preacher Srimanta Sankardev left Bardowa to propagate his teachings all over the region, he passed through places like Komorakata, Bhalukaguri. Gangmau. etc. and finally landed up at Dhuwahat Belaguri in the lower part of Majuli. On hearing the news of his arrival, Dinanath Baruah went to see the Guru, Srimanta Sankaradeva and requested him to accept Dinanath as his disciple. Moved by his devotion the Guru not only accepted him as a disciple but also gifted him a booklet called Prahlad Charita.
