Archeological traces of an ancient bridge are on the cliff in front of the Bamboo walkway, facing the Brahamaputra.

The bridge in 1206 a.c. helped Kamrup warriors, under the leadership of King Prithu, to defeat 12 thousand horsemen from the Turkish Afghan empire, as scripted in Kanai Barasi rock inscriptions.
