“One of the best in the state”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

If my opinion counts, I will struggle to find another place like this in entire state. It's so pristine, peaceful and quiet. Very good for spending a winter evening. During summer, it's either too hot or too wet due to the heavy rain. It's got a snacks shop too, and the entry fee is just not going to break the bank.

“A picturesque tourist spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

AGNIGARH hill,located by the side of the mighty river Brahmaputra, is one of the most important tourist destinations of Tezpur. On top of the hill there are a number of beautiful sculptures(mostly mythological), with a park, an artificial water-fall, an open air stage and also a restaurant. A spiral staircase leads to the hilltop, from where one can view the beautiful city of Tezpur, as well as the mighty Brahmaputra. The amazing view of the sunset from top of the Agnigarh is irresistible, for any tourist, visiting Tezpur .
