Monastery (Satras) Hopping, Majuli

The cultural explosion on the river island of Majuli is unbelievable. Across the many monasteries set up in the 15th century, art forms of the dancing monks, mask making and pottery making have strived with substantial Hindu and Buddhist influences giving rise to a blend of hues and forms that are singularly marvellous. If the mask making takes your fancy, you need only ask and the monks would be pleased to share their craft with you.
