Bhairabkunda is situated with the wonderful sites of nature   in  the tri-junction of Bhutan, Assam and Arunachal   Pradesh,   is considered to be a God’s gift for the human   being. It is located at the northern bed, some 22 km from   the    district headquarter of Udalguri town. Also   prominently    known as important tourist place of Shiva’    for  the pilgrims.   Devotees visit the temple frequently and   offer pujas to   achieve success in their life. Marriageable   couples prefer the   place for their romantic intimacy. The   Shiva temple   geographically lies into the Bhutanese   territory  but it is an   important pilgrimage for the Indian visitors.
The Bhairabkunda is not only the meeting place of geographical borders but it is also for the river Jia Dhansiri, Bhairavi and Daifam.

 

The meeting point of rivers looks like a ‘Kunda’ (worshipping place of Lord Shiva). Thus, probably it got the  name Bhairabkunda. The Bhairabkunda is a small town area  under the Udalguri district of BTAD area in Assam, is a  transit place for the eastern province of Bhutan.

A Bhutanese small sub-divisional administrative town called ‘Daifam’ is here known for the wine trades. It was a fastly growing town area in Bhutan but lost its pace after the violent democracy support movement started in the late eighties in Bhutan. Although, a very development faces a halt in the area a new dawn is expected after the creation of BTAD. The BTAD authority has taken interest to develop this area. The people prominently considered it as a suitable picnic spot for the new year.

The Hindu devotees visit the place in ‘Makar Sankranti’   where they take bath in the meeting point of three rivers   and   offer pujas in the Shiva temple.

According to proverbial tales there was a kunda where the   devotees used to offer pujas. The fishes in this kunda used   to  take the rice thrown by the sacred devotees and sprinkle   the holy water for peace while they used to avoid impure   people. In another tale, it is said that the extreme devotees   of   shiva- The Bodos used to pry God performing Kherai dances in the ancient ages. The God realizes himself among the devotees and all the musical instruments were gathered in a house of Deuri (worshipper).

Once, the house ablazed and all the musical instruments were disappeared. ‘Bhim of Panch Pandavas too was lived here during his ‘AGYATAVASA’ the proverbs quoted.Down the ages the three Bodo socialist heroes Laothai, Bambur and Adang gwras were reigned the area. They were divided equal shares of land among their citizens.
 The area is prominently inhabitated by Bodo, Nepalese,
 Adivasis and Assamese Communities in the areas of BTAD, Arunachalee and Nepalese and Bhutias in the Bhutan.
