Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.

CHENGA - BENGA & THE WATER TANK

 

Legend has it that Chenga and Benga were two holy men who did much for the upliftment and benefit of the local natives. The Chenga - Benga tank is situated a few furlongs west of Balapara tank and is almost of the same size and depth with the latter. The legend about this tank is that there are treasures inside this tank also. It is also stated that on certain days of full moon, pious and fortunate persons can see golden vessels. Utensils floating on the surface of water like the leaves of lotus. Legend further says that in olden days "dastea" of God could even collect these vessels and use them in religions rites and rituals and then return them. This may be part of the fantasy world of ancient Kamrupa, the Centre of the "Tantric" Cult.
