Batadrowa gave birth to the famous Vaishnavite reformer Sankardeva, who brought about a Renaissance in Assamese society, at the same time the call of the azzan also blends equally well into the unique mosaic and cultural tapestry of Nagaon. Located in the very heartland of Assam, it falls directly at the center of the entire northeast of India. An old district which dates back to 1833, it is Assam’s second most populous district, which probably prompted its old British administrators to jocularly describe Nagaon as a district of 3 c’s: chickens, children and cases.The district also plays host to a sizeable portion of the world-renowned Kaziranga National Park.The Agar perfume industry, whose fragrance wafts all the way to the Middle East, is also at Hojai, making Nagaon, in its many undiscovered facets, Assam’s best kept secret.A few of the oldest establishments of Nagaon are the Rajasthan Hotel and the Jubilee Field. Football matches held in Jubilee Field still attract large crowds.
