Originally built in 1987 to connect Nagaon and Sonitpur Districts on the North and South Banks, Kolia Bhomora Setu with a length of 3 kilometers is surrounded by the Brahmaputra on both the sides. The bridge got its name from the Ahom General, Kalia Bhomora Phukan. Smooth, and broad, it is one of the best places to go for a drive. Along with tourism, the bridge plays an important role in the development of Northeast India states - it cuts off the seven sister states of the North-East from the rest of the country.
