DHUBRI, Jan 17: The historic Kakat Kuta Sattra, which was completely destroyed in the last flood, was today reopened at Kamnigaon village, about 4 km from Coochbehar in West Bengal.
The Sattra was established in 1979 by the bank of Torsa river that faces the wrath of flood every year. Last year, the religious institution was completely destroyed in the flood.
However, the Sattra was restored by sattradhikars of the nearby Sattras and devotees from West Bengal and the western part of Assam.
Attending the restoration ceremony, the president of Asom Satra Mahasabha, Jitendra Nath Prodhani, said that Kakat Kuta Sattra is not just a religious place but a symbol of the unity and rich cultural heritage of the people of the area. It is only due to the love of the people that the restoration of the Sattra became possible within such a short time, added Prodhani in the presence of many bhakats who came from different parts.
