On September 8, 2016, Majuli will become the first river island district of India. It will be upgraded to a district from sub-division by the Assam Government. The island is inhabited mostly by Mishing tribal people and is the hub of Assamese neo-Vaishnavite culture. It was formed due to course changes by the river Brahmaputra and its tributaries, mainly the Lohit. It covers an area of around 340 miles and is one of the prime tourist destinations of North East.
