- On the banks of the Brahmaputra lies Tezpur, nicknamed the ‘City of Eternal Romance’. Ironically, Tezpur gets its name from the Sanskrit words ‘Tez’ (blood) and ‘Pur’ (town). It is said to have been once known as Sonitpur (also has the same meaning). Tezpur’s origins are legendary and ancient – apparently, a legendary battle involving the devas and asuras caused much bloodshed which caused the city to be stained red with blood. Apart from a culturally deep history, Tezpur has won double accolades for being the ‘Cleanest City in Assam’ as well as the ‘Cultural Capital of Assam’. The fast-developing city is full of beautiful sceneries, hillocks and parks, with its economy thieving on the surrounding tea gardens.
