Shripur Dewalay Mandir in Nalbari was built
during ancient times. It was constructed in reverence to the Hindu Goddess
Parvati. It is said that the orders for construction of the temple were passed
by Sib Singha, who was a rule of the Ahom kingdom. Legends say that this temple

Due to its religious connotations, the people of Assam
celebrate the Durga Puja and Kali Puja with fervor along with the tribal people
