BISWANATH CHARIALI: The third day of Rongali Bihu known as Gosain Bihu has a special significance at Guptkashi Biswanath Ghat, around 10 kilometres from Biswanath Chariali town towards the south, under Biswanath subdivision.
According to the 339-year old tradition, the Gosai Phurua festival is held at Guptkashi Biswanath Ghat. Following the tradition that has been going on since the Ahom rule, the Gosai is walked about 5 kilometres from the Shiva temple situated at Guptakashi Biswanath Ghat to Panibhoral village located on the north side.
Again, the Gosai or the deity is brought to the Biswanath Temple in a Kekora dola with religious rituals in the evening. This tradition is still maintained as before and a large number of devotees from different parts throng Biswanath Ghat from the morning to offer Puja and also to take part in the festival.
