The Island of Majuli is known as the cultural center of Assam and houses 22 Hindu Vaishnava monasteries, originally known as the "Satras" in India

The Brahmaputra River is home to Majuli, the largest river island in the world. Here, the monks of the Uttar Kamala-Bari each harbour several skills: they are scholars, farmers and outstanding acrobats.

But their unique way of monastery life is basically under threat - the water level has been rising constantly since 1950. Today, already 2 thirds of the Island have been swallowed up by the water
