Extinction threat to Gorokhiya Dol

Continuous erosion caused by Dikhou river has now become a threat to the existence of the historic Gorokhiya Dol located in Nazira. The lackadaisical attitude of the concerned departments has left the monument in a deplorable condition. If nothing is done at the moment, the monument built in the 17th century during the reign of the Ahom kings, may soon become extinct.
