A museum glorifying the historic ‘Battle of Saraighat’ is soon going to be constructed in Assam.
Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on October 1st, 2019 directed officials to construct a museum glorifying the ‘Battle of Saraighat‘ where the Ahoms routed the Mughals.

The museum will be constructed with a view to showcase the valour of the chief commander or ‘Borphukan’ in the Ahom Army, Lachit Borphukan during the Battles of Saraighat.
