Cinnamara College Museum, Archives and Library

Keeping in view of unending urge for innovation, infinite curiosity to explore the new horizons, to restore the obscure historical elements of the bygone age, creative historical research on the basis of archival sources and rare documents, are the cardinal background of the emergence of Cinnamara College Museum, Archives and Library. Despite Jorhat being a nursery of Assamese culture, hub of enterprise and centre of creativity since it was foundered way back in 1794 by Ahom King Gaurinath Singh, lack of a museum has always stood in the way of scientifically preserving documents and artifacts relating to notable past events. In fact, upcoming generations need to take pride in their matchless legacy. Similarly, in other fields of activity, spreading of Sankari art and culture by the Vaisnavite monasteries in the area, superior equability of implements crafted by skilled blacksmiths of Karanga throughout the six hundred year-long suzerainty of the mighty Ahom kings, valour of the hardy Choudang community, the art of endi and muga rearing by the Katoni community, setting up of Cinnamara Tea Estate by Maniram Dewan in 1846 to name only a few, spontaneously poured out from the participants in gushes and torrents as the floodgates of memory stood ajar. In the light of this perspective, it can be realized the historical importance of southern part greater Jorhat District where our Museum, Archive and Library is situated at Cinnamara College. However, till now we have collected a huge number of manuscripts, rare books, old and rare documents to our museum, archive and library. The registration of this museum is under process.
