Destinations Covered: Tinsukia, Tezu, Parsuramkund

This circuit commences at Tinsukia, a road-rail head in Assam, leading to Tezu, Roing and Parsuramkund in the Lohit district of Arunachal Pradesh. Some 21-km to the northeast of Tezu, the District Head quarter lies Parasuramkund where, according to the legend recorded in the Kalika Purana, Parasuram washed away the sin of killing his mother in the waters of Brahma Kund. On Makar Sankranti each year, a Mela is held at the Kund where visitors wash away their suns. Roing is known for the historical fort of Bhishmaknagar built with clay bricks and embellished with pottery. The Bhishmaknagar fort was first excavated in 1996-97, which testifies to the penetration of the Aryan culture into Arunachal in the 4th century AD.
