Tezpur name is taken from the language Sanskrit. If we split the word Tezpur to Teza and Pura, then it means the blood town. Earlier, the place was known as Sonitpur, though the city was renamed after the battle among the army of Lord Krishna and army of Baanasura. This fight was fought to save the Lord Krishna’s grandson Aniruddha. Throughout the fight, the city was totally stained red color due to lots of blood so the city was renamed to Tezpur. However, Tezpur is the 8th biggest metropolis of Assam next to Guwahati and some more cities such as Nagaon, Silchar, Jorhat, Dibrugarh, Bongaigaon and Tinsukia.
Entering to the city is possible through Koliabhomora Bridge of Tezpur where a tourist can feel this city of love by getting details about the story of Usha (daughter of King Baanasur) and Aniruddha’s love (grandson of Lord Krishna). Baanasur was the cruel ruler of North East blessed by Lord Shiva with big armors. The ego of Baanasur made the things difficult as he was fighting with almost all gods. His win over several gods made him crueler then other rulers. Lord Krishna decided to kill his ego by fighting with Baanasur at Sonitpur. They fought for long time where lots of soldiers lost their lives. The blood was everywhere, though the lord Krishna defeated the Baanasur after the long battle. The place was completely bloodshed so that the city was renamed to Tezpur.
