Sundaridiya Satra played a vital role in spreading Vaishnavism in Assam. Sri Madhabdeva stayed in this satra for about 14 years after establishing it. During his stay here the great saint dug a well which is still now preserved in this satra and the water from this well is considered to be very holy. It is also believed that if the devotees travelling here drink the holy water of this well then all their sins get washed away. The satra also preserves several items that were used by the guru even today to pay homage to the saint. This famous monastery of the Vaishnava sect has today turned into one of the most visited tourist places at Barpeta. Moreover, the art and architecture used in the interiors of the satra makes the place worth visiting.
