Geography

Dhemaji is one of the youngest district of Assam. It came into being on 1 October 1989. It is one of the remotest district of India, at the easetern-most part of Assam. Situated in the foothills of the lower Himalyas it is relatively a small town. The town's name "Dhemaji' is believed to be derived from a combination two Assamese words "dhal" meaning flood and "dhemali" meaning "play". Being in a confluence of rivers with the mighty Brahmaputra river flanking the district and its numerous tributaries running through the district, the region is perennially affected by floods.

The district is inhabited by Assamese speaking people -- Chutia,Ahoms,Sonowal Kacharis, Koches, Kalitas, Kaibartas and other tribes like Mishings and Deoris. Also there are the migrant Hindu and Muslim Bengalis.

The heart of Dhemaji district is Dhemaji Mouza (an area demarcated by the British regime for the purpose of tax collection, equivalent to a taluk or pargana in the pan-Indian context).Secondly, Silapathar & Sissi Borgaon are the main bussiness place of Dhemaji.The Bogibil project is running naerest to these places.
