Bhairabkunda 1/undefined by Tripoto


Champak Sharma
The remaining one hour drive took us through a quiet rural setting and woods with few people to be seen. Bhairabkunda, situated in the tri-junction of Bhutan and two Indian states of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, is a popular picnic spot and a sacred place for devotees of Lord Shiva. This is not only the meeting place of geographical borders but also Jampani River (originating in Bhutan) and Bhairabi River merge here to form the Dhanshiri River. The point where the three rivers merge is in the shape of a ‘kunda’, which is a place of worship of Lord Shiva and this is where the name ‘Bhairabkunda’ comes from – ‘Bharaib’ being a name of the Lord.
