Dibrugarh derives its name from the term "Dibrumukha." The word "mukh" in the name "Dibru" signifies "s Youth." Dibrugarh is the seat of the Dibrugarh district of Assam, India. The British arrived in Assam in 1826 under the Yandaboo Agreement. They picked Dibrugarh to be the administrative and commercial capital of Upper Assam, establishing Dibrugarh as the hub of activity in this northeastern area. The British built a fort on the banks of the Dibaru River. This can also be considered as the origin of the name Dibrugarh. The word dibru means "blister"; garh means "strong". During World War II, the city was an important military base and was used as a transit camp for evacuees from Myanmar. Today, Dibrugarh is an independent region with a regional headquarters in Dibrugarh.
