Majuli for the past five centuries has been the cultural capital of Assam. The main depositories of cultural and spiritual heritage are the Sattras (Hindu Monastries)., which are just like Gurukul (hermitages) of yore. The antique social customs of indigenous Assamese society are in practice only in the Sattras of Majuli in lineage system. In the Sattra institutions of Majuli there is ample scope for learning faculty which help in all round development of an individual.
