Who planned a bridge over Brahmaputra during Ahom age?
Ahom General Kolia Bhomora Barphukan. Brahmaputra is long, trans-boundary river, which run from great Himalayas to Bay of Bengal through Tibet, China, India and Bangladesh. In Assam it becomes as wide as 10 kilometers. The need of a bridge over this river was felt even during the period of Ahom rule. Intelligent Ahom General Kolia Bhomora Barphukan prepared an elaborate plant to construct a bridge over Brahmaputra river. It was in early 16th century. The Ahom General started with site selection (connecting Bhomorguri hills near present day Tezpur with Kamakhya hill of Nagaon district) and even collected special boulders for the massive bridge. But the General passed away and the ambitious project died with him.
After more than 400 years, the second bridge on river Brahmaputra came up near Tezpur. It was built near the place selected by Kolia Bhomora Barphukan for his bridge. Inaugurated in 1987, the bridge is now known as Kolia Bhomora Setu.
