Dighalipukhuri
 

Dighalipukhuri alias Digholy Pukhury, the manmade artificial lake dug straight from the Brahmaputra, is located in the heart of the city. It is one of the rare beauty spots of Guwahati that dates back to several thousand years. During the Ahom period the Dighalipukhuri used be an inland port for war ships and boats. The lake derives its name because of its half-a-mile length (dighal). But later it was separated from the river and a portion was filled up, on which the Circuit House and the High Court was built. Dighalipukhuri offers a relaxing atmosphere and provides boating facilities and recreational activities.
