History of Duliajan

The name of the city was derived from the terms Dulia, which means that palanquin bearers of the Ahom kings, and Jan, which is called a river stream. The Ahom kings, who were also known as the Swargadeos, liked to hunt in the dense Upper Dihing forests. These kings would travel by boats from the capital of Rangpur and Gargoan to the Dikhow river located in Brahmaputra, then travel upstream, get into the Dihin river and camp at the entrance of the stream that is located close to the Tipling-Ghat in the current place of Duliajan. The stream was known as the guide for the bearers of the palanquin. Hence, when the new oil town was built in this area, the name Duliajan became a natural choice for this place in order to honor the palanquin bearers. Initially, this place was a very small and was known as a village. It developed at a rapid pace and the Government of India has acknowledged it as a town.

The Government of India has bestowed this town with many awards for building impressive infrastructure in this town. This town has developed in such a way that it is considered to be one of the most developed towns in the 21st century. This town is well known both in India as well in foreign countries.

According to one legend, a sub-community of the Ahom called the Dulia Khel settled on the bank of the small rivulet Duriajan, which still exists as a small village of Kachari Pathar, located close to Duliajan. This Duriajan was later converted to Duliajan after the place was  by the Dulia community.
