Description

Majuli, one of the world’s largest inhabited river islands, has several satras – Vaishnavite monasteries, some dating back to the 16th  century. The Institution of Satra is a unique feature of Vaishnavism in Assam, founded by Sankardeva, the father of Assamese culture. The satras are not just monasteries, but centres of traditional performing arts.

In 15th century the first Satra was founded in Majuli. Since then  sixty five Satras have come up for the propagation of ethics and  socio-cultural ideals. However, at present there are only twenty two Satras in Majuli. The others had to be shifted to safer places due to the devastation of flood and erosion.

The satras consist of a large prayer hall facing a simple shrine, surrounded by dormitories and bathing tanks for monks.
