History of Tinsukia:
The headquarters of the district are located in this region. It is often termed as the business capital of Assam. The crowd of the district consists of both Hindi- speaking people and Assamese. However, the rural look of the city is changing gradually as new malls and buildings are being constructed. It is an important trading center both industrially and commercially. The main objects that are being traded are the agricultural products like ginger, tea, oranges, paddy, citrus fruits etc. It also has the biggest junction railway station in the state of Assam and is the primary connector of the state as it forms a way of communication both by rail and water to the other parts of the country.
This city was originally called as Changmai Pathar and is based on the site of Bangmara. Historically it was made the capital during the Muttack Kingship which was led by Swargadeo Sarbananda Singha.
The administrator of the Muttack Kingdom that is Swargdeo Sarbananda Singha was also called Mezara. He changed his name from Mezara after becoming the king of this area. Saka 1716 and Saka 1717 were the two sets of coins that Swargdeo Sarbananda Singha introduced during his rule and he in fact inscribed the title of Swargdeo in every coin that was made.
As per the orders of Swargdeo Sarbananda Singha, the royal minister Gopinath Barbaruah befriended with Godha and convinced him to dig a pond which bore a triangular formation and was named as Tinikunia Pukhuri. A station was constructed very near to it sometime in 1884, which was named as Tinsukia. Ever since this place has been called by the same name and thus, the name Tinsukia came into existence.
The Dibru-Saikhowa Park is in close proximity of this area and is known for its collection of endangered species.
