Sri Surya Pahar – A confluence of the three religions

Sri Surya Pahar, located about 12 km southeast of Goalpara town and about 136 km northwest of Guwahati, is a significant unknown archaeological site in Assam, India. Sri Surya Pahar, a confluence of the three religions of Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism, is a treasure trove of ancient monuments. Sri Surya Pahar was the place of worship of Surya – the Sun God. It was one of the two places where Surya was worshiped in ancient Assam. According to popular belief, 99999 Shiva Lingas were engraved here by sage Vyasa to make it a second Kashi. There are still hundreds of Shiva Lingas scattered all over the hill particularly at the foot of the hill. The only place in the North-East of India where the remains of Jainism can be found, there is a carving of Adinath – the 1st Tirthankara of the Jains. There are also other Jain carvings all of which date back to 9th century A.D. These carvings were done by the followers of Adinath or Rishabhanath. The name of ‘Sri Surya Pahar’ implies that the site was perhaps associated with the cult of sun worship. Literary accounts corroborate that among other Hindu deities worshiped in ancient Assam, ‘Surya’ (or the Sun God) occupied a prominent place in its cultural history. References are found in the Kalika-Purana (c.10th century) about two seats of sun worship in ancient Assam.

  1. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you need to publish
    more on this subject, it might not be a taboo subject but usually folks don’t discuss
    these issues. To the next! Kind regards!!

  2. Excellent website you have here but I was wondering if
    you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics discussed here?
    I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get opinions from other
    experienced people that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    Thank you!

  5. I believe what you posted made a bunch of sense. But,
    think about this, suppose you were to write a killer headline?

    I mean Sri Surya Pahar – A confluence of the three religions | Journal Edge is a little boring.

    You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create
    news headlines to grab viewers to click. You might add
    a related video or a related picture or two to get readers interested about what you’ve written. Just my
