Sri Surya Pahar is a significant archaeological site in Assam. It is located about 12 km southeast of Goalpara town and about 136 km northwest of Guwahati. In this hilly terrain, many rock cut Shivalingas and votive stupas have been discovered. Idols of Hindu, Buddhist and Jain deities are scattered all along the area. Sri Surya Pahar is a treasure trove of ancient monuments, idols and other sculptures that depict a confluence of Hindu, Jain and Buddhist religion. If the legend surrounding the Sri Surya Pahar is to be believed, sage Vyasa engraved 99999 Shivalingas here in order to create a second Kashi where there were 1,00000 Shiva Lingas. A carving of Adinath – the first Tirthankara of the Jains – can also be found here.
