Da-Parbatiya, Tezpur

Da-Parbatiya, a few kilometers outside Tezpur, has within its limits the ruins of the oldest temple in Assam consisting of the remains of a brick temple of Siva from the Ahom period that was erected upon the ruins of a stone temple of the earlier Gupta period, circa 6th century AD. In 1897 an earthquake caused the Ahom brick temple to collapse revealing a door frame from the older structure, one of the three rare Gupta period architectural pieces in existence in India. It depicts two goddesses, Ganga and Yamuna, holding garlands in their hands standing at the foot of the door-jambs which are decorated with beautiful ornamental foliage carvings.
