Agnigarh is a hillock located in Tezpur in the North East Indian state of Assam. It is the site of the fortress which was built by Banasura to keep his daughter Usha in isolation. Legend has it that this fortress was surrounded by fire at all times so that nobody could go in or out of the perimeter without permission. Usha fell in love with Aniruddha in her dreams not knowing who he was. Agnigarh is a living testimony of the immortal love between Princess Usha and Prince Aniruddha, grandson of Lord Krishna.
Present day Agnigarh is a hill on the right bank of Brahmaputra River. From the hilltop the entire view of the city can be viewed along with the magnificent view of the kolia Bhomora Bridge on River Brahmaputra.
