Threat to Gorokhiya temple

A historical monument that speaks volumes of the Ahoms era is on the verge of extinction. Its none other than the Gorokhya Dol in Nazira. The river Dikhow has been posing serious threat to it if the erosion is not checked at an earlier date.  

 But strange are the ways of the government. The 17th century monument seems to have been a liability of the government. Despite repeated requests, the government has not done even an iota to protect and preserve the historic temple.    

The temple premises are collapsing to the river Dikhow. Local residents told Assam Times that they have apprised the authorities of the impending collapse of the temple. But of no avail. The government lacks sincerity which is why, the Gorokhiya temple is going to be wiped out.
