It is a unique blend of Aryanisation and is characterized by its vibrant music and dance, colourful rituals and festivals, with beautiful temple architecture. For students studying the culture and history of Assam, the Sattriya culture is an invaluable resource. It provides insight into the state's past and present and helps students understand the complex cultural and religious influences that have shaped Assam's identity.”
