Of the five (5) National Parks in Assam, the Dibru-Saikhowa National Park is one of the best bio diversity spots of India. Dibru-Saikhowa National Park is known for its population of  White winged wood duck in its natural habitat and also for its bright colored wild horses known as Feral Horses that are descendants of the domestic horses that strayed, escaped, or were deliberately released into the wild and remained to survive and reproduce there. Famous across the United States as ‘Mustangs’, Australia as ‘Brumby’, ‘Misaki’ in Japan these horses are a prized breed to watch out for at Dibru-Saikhowa. Best to be spotted during the monsoon season of Assam lasting from July through September, the Dibru Saikhowa National Park becomes a wild haven for all nature enthusiasts during that time. Generally across Assam, most of the other National Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries close for public viewing during the monsoon season as these National Parks and Sanctuaries get flood. The Dibru Saikhowa National Park is the only National Park which remains open during the season offering its viewers an Exotic journey across the blooming orchid fields of the National Park. The tour is arranged on House Boats that take you on a journey of a lifetime spotting the varied Flora and Fauna of the Dibru Saikhowa National Park. Onboard kitchen facilities across these Houseboats ensure all your meal needs are taken care of. This experience on cruising across the waters of the Brahmaputra at the Dibru Saikhowa National Park is at par with the experience of cruising on houseboats on the back waters of Kerala.

The Dibru-Saikhowa National Park is situated in the floodplains of the mighty Brahmaputra river. It consists of semi wet evergreen forests, tropical moist deciduous forest, bamboo, cane brakes and grasslands and is just the place for wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers with its breathtaking natural beauty and diverse flora and fauna. Although this National Park was primarily meant for the conservation of White winged wood duck in its natural habitat other endangered animals of this park are Hoolock gibbon, Capped langur, Slow loris, Water buffalo, Tiger, Elephant, Gangetic river dolphin, etc.

The Cluster of Nine Ponds as a symbol of Benevolence – the ‘Na-Pukhuri’, Tinsukia, the State of Assam, Incredible India!

During the journey across Assam spotting the exotic tourist spots and places of historical interest in the State one must halt at the Commercial Capital of Assam – the busy town of Tinsukia. Although a quick glance would seem it to be just like a normal modern day city; this place has been an important landmark in the history of Assam. Tinsukia was the capital of the one of the mighty empires of Assam after the Ahoms – the Muttack Kingdom founded by Swargadeo Sarbananda Singha. During his rule Swargadeo Sarbananda Singha instructed his Minister Gopinath Barbaruah to dig a triangular pond which later came to be known as Tinikunia (meaning Triangular) Pukhuri (meaning Pond).

It was in the year 1788 A.D. after the the ‘Moamaria’ uprising that ‘Mezera’ – the powerful leader pro-claiming independence established the Muttack Kingdom with its first capital at ‘Rongagara’ on the banks of the River Dibru and took the name of ‘Sarbananda Singha’. After three years of his reign in the year 1791 A.D. the capital was shifted to ‘Bengmora’ – the present Headquarter of the Tinsukia district. The area of the State was 1800 (Eighteen Hundred) Square Miles.

As a mark of his benevolence the Muttack King Sarbanada Singha had 24 tanks dug out at various places. The Na-Pukhuri (cluster of nine ponds) which was dug in 1792 A.D. is the largest among these tanks. Among these nine ponds, the one situated in the center is the most popular. This tank covers an area of around 11.75 acres and is filled with natural water, which is why it is also called a lake. The District administration of Tinsukia decided to develop this historical site into an amusement park and a tourist spot. A 400 m long tiled pathway and 1200 m of pucca jogging pathway has been constructed along with placement of a number of playing equipment. This park also has a triple cascade fountain in its central area. Remains of the construction from the late 1700’s by the Muttack Kingdom can also be seen here at the pond.

The History of the Dibru-Sadiya Railway and its memories at the Heritage Railway Park and Museum, Tinsukia, the State of Assam, Incredible India!

The British had come to Assam in the early 1800’s much before the State had gone under the British rule. They had come to seek for alternates to the Tea of China when their Tea trade with China had run into rough weather. It was here in Assam that they discovered the “Camellia Asamica” (better renowned today as the Assam CTC Tea) and in 1839 the Assam Company was incorporated that started producing and exporting the famous Assam Tea).

But as history tells us, no successful business is established without initial hurdles. The tea factories in upper Assam mostly in the region of ‘Chabua’ (‘Cha’ meaning Tea and ‘Bua’ meaning to Grow) were located at a far of distance from the nearest available River port at Dibrugarh. Transportation from the tea factories to the port became an impossible task due to non availability of proper transportation facilities as at that time most of this region was under thick forest cover. Though God was bountiful enough to provide all the required natural resources for the Tea industry to flourish in this part of the country like coal and oil; transportation of these resources to the tea garden became a much bigger challenge for the British! And as per the teachings of the Best Management Courses courses in the World today, the British too were aware of the fact that only manufacturing a product was not sufficient for it to gather the attention of the buyers – effective selling, marketing and customer reach was necessary to make the product an instant hit!

Learning from this management principle the British decided to set up an efficient Rail route across this part of the country to ensure not only a viable transportation mode to the Dibrugarh port but also to ensure the requisite mineral resources to run these tea factories efficiently reach on time. This Rail route came to be known as the ‘Dibru Sadiya’ railway.

It was in 1881, that the British Raj under the able guidance of Dr. John Berry White and Mr. Benjamin Piercy established the Assam Railways and Trading Company (AR&T Company). This company was constituted with three (3) objectives in mind:

  • To constitute an efficient Rail route across the Dibru Sadiya terminal
  • To develop the coal mining techniques across the Coal reserves in Makum – namely Tikak, Namdang, Tipong, Tirap, Baragolai and Ledo
  • Improving the shipping route and services in the region

Keeping in mind their objectives to reach the above mentioned mission statements the Assam Railways and Trading Company started the construction of the Dibru-Sadiya Railway and it was on the 15th of August, 1882 that the rail route was opened from the Dibrugarh Port to Dinjan. The construction continued and on 23rd December 1882, the rail route was opened ’til Chabua. The route for the passenger train from the Makum junction was opened to public on the 16th of July, 1883.

The memoirs of the Dibru-Sadiya Railway are well preserved at the Railway Heritage Park and Museum at Tinsukia where one can also view Steam Locomotives that built the success story of one the World’s largest Railway Organization – the Indian Railways!

Gradually, the knowledge of the bountiful lands of Assam reached the ears of the other powerful men of the ‘British Raj’ who visited this land in search of opportunities to explore other availability of natural resources. It was during the visit of Mr. John Berry White, a civil surgeon, who found out the possibility of coal in Assam. Under his able guidance the Makum Coalfield was discovered and coal mines were opened at Tikak (1884), Namdang (1896), Tirap (1904), Baragolai (1909), Tipong (1924) and Namdang Dip Mine (1904). These expeditions also lead to the discovery of Oil when the first Oil well was dug at Digboi on October 19th 1889 resulting in the establishment of Asia’s oldest Oil Refinery at Digboi. Timber requirements were harnessed from the abundant forests at the Dehing Patkai Wildlife Sanctuary. Tea exports needed plywood boxes that led to the establishment of Asia’s first Plywood Factory at Margherita. ‘Til this time it was only the British who came here. It was only during the Second World War than Americans came to Assam to setup one of the toughest challenges to beat the Japanese – ‘Building the famous Stilwell Road across the Pangsau Pass (Hell Pass)’. Under the able guidance of General Vinegar Joe Stilwell the Stilwell Road was constructed and it helped in restoring the Allies contact with the Chinese troops that proved as a major step in crushing the Imperial Japanese Army. Traces of American establishment can be found here at the Military Hospital at Margherita.

The Centenary Oil Museum at the Legendary Oil town of Assam – ‘DIGBOI’, home to ‘Asia’s oldest Oil Refinery’ and the ‘Oldest Operational Oil Well in the World’, the State of Assam, Incredible India!

A quaint town located amidst the green hills and the lush tea gardens in the extreme north-eastern corner of the country speaks of a legendary history which in due time has started to lose its grandeur. In our quest to relive these moments of the past, Jungleideas narrates to you this story of the Legendary Oil Town of Assam – Digboi (home to ‘Asia’s oldest Oil Refinery’ and the ‘Oldest Operational Oil Well in the World’).

The history of Oil in India began to unfold in the early 1800’s at the head of the Brahmaputra Valley in Assam. It was a vast area of rain-forest surrounded by a semi-circle of high mountains and inhabited, in its more liveable parts, by the Singphos, Khamtis, Phakials and other tribes. Into this beautiful yet savage region, with all the hidden an overt dangers of the jungle, men of daring ventured. They came with different agenda; soldiers to ensure tranquillity and safety at the outposts of the British Empire, civil servants with the assignments of various nature, explorers looking for coal and timber and the exclusive tea-leaf. It was during this time that many came across oil seepages and fortunately for posterity, recorded such instances in their dairies and memoirs.

As per the books of history it was in 1866 that Mr. Goodenough of McKillop, Stewart and Company was making an attempt to utilize the petroleum of Assam. He was granted certain rights over a large tract of land on both sides of the Dehing river, from Jaipur to the Noa Dehing. Oil was struck in one hole on March 26th 1867 at 118 feet, as many as eight holes having put down about this time. These results though didn’t allow Mr. Goodenough to establish a petroleum industry.

Attribute of setting up the Oil industry at Digboi goes to the Assam Railways and Trading Company (AR&T). It was under the guidance of Dr. John Barry White that on October 19th 1889, oil was struck at a depth of 178 feet at Digboi. From here started the journey of Oil Industry in India that speaks of a Legend holding its firm base at Digboi – the Legendary Oil town of Assam!

This Legendary history of the Digboi Oil Story is well preserved at the Digboi Centenary Oil Museum which is built on the fringes of Digboi Well No.1 from which oil is still gently seeping. Inaugurated in January 2002, this museum is a treasure house of memorabilia of the past, tools and equipment of the yesteryear s and elegant wall panels depicting the history of Oil refining in India. While an air raid shelter of the World War II greets visitors at the entrance of the museum, the steel rig of Digboi Well No. 1 stands as a silent sentinel of excellence adjacent to the museum building.

Jungleideas welcomes you to India’s North East to visit the Centenary Oil Museum at the Legendary Oil town of Assam – ‘DIGBOI’, home to ‘Asia’s oldest Oil Refinery’ and the ‘Oldest Operational Oil Well in the World’, the State of Assam, Incredible India!
