Tinsukia Junction


The old name of Tinsukia is Bangmara, formerly known as Changmai Pathar. It is the capital of the Mutaq Kingdom. The city of Bangmara was built by King Sarbananda Singha with the help of his minister Gopinath Barbaruah, who was an ally of Godha. The city was built in the middle of what is now Tinsukia (near Senairam H.S. School). According to Sarbananda Singha's instructions, Godha Baruah dug a triangular pond called "Tinikunia Pukhuri" in Bangmara. The DibruSadiya railway line was built in 1884, and a station called Tinsukia was installed near "Tinikunia Phukhuri". Since then, the city has been popularly known as Tinsukia.
