The river bed sands were scanned and identified; gold particles are then extracted and processed through certain means that were learnt through prolonging legacies. People suspect that there might be a ‘gold field ’somewhere in the course of the river. The word ‘Subansiri’ is a portmanteau word, ‘subarna’ and ‘siri’, meaning gold and flow respectively.

In the Epic Puran and Bhagavad records that, on the occasion of Pancha Pandavas Rajsuya Yagya, the Kings of Brahmaputra valley offered Yudhistira a huge load of gold shipped on elephant back. Legends claim, these tons of gold were extracted from the bed of Subansiri. During the period of Ahom Kingdom were engaged in extracting gold by washing sand of the river.

एपिक पुराण और भगवद में यह लिखा गया है कि, पंचायत राजस्व्य यज्ञ, ब्रह्मपुत्र घाटी के राजाओं के अवसर पर युधिष्ठिर ने हाथी को वापस भेजे जाने वाले सोने का भारी भार पेश किया। महापुरूषों का दावा है कि सुबनसिरी के बिस्तर से इन टन सोना निकाले गए थे। अहोम किंगडम की अवधि के दौरान नदी के रेत को धोकर सोने का उपयोग करने में लगे हुए थे।

साक्ष्य यह दावा करते हैं कि 1 9 06-07 तक पारंपरिक सुवर्णसिंह नदी के किनारे रहने वाले लोगों द्वारा पारंपरिक सोना निकालने वाला तंत्र लागू किया गया है। नदी के रेत में स्वर्ण कणों को मिलाते हुए व्यापारियों को देखने के लिए वहां रहने वाले आंखों के गवाह थे।

Established by the Ahom King Chao Lung Siu-Ka-Pha in 1228, Charaideo in Assam was the first capital of the Ahom Kingdom. A place for ancestral gods of the Ahoms, it is the burial ground of kings and queens. Also called the ‘Pyramids of Assam’, the hillocks of Charaideo have tombs (called Maidams) and the place is compared to the Pyramids of Egypt, thus proving to be a splendid example of medieval times.

There are actually over 150 maidams, but only 30 of these are protected by the Archaeological Survey of India along with Assam State Archaeology Department. Mysterious places of Assam
