The Dibrugarh Central Jail will shifted to a new site and a Kalakshetra will be built in its place. This was announced by Chief Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma during his visit to Dibrugarh on Friday.

Srimanta Sankaradev Kalakshetra commonly Kalakshetra is a cultural institution named after the medieval poet-playwright and reformer Srimanta Sankardev. Guwahati already boasts of a Kalakshetra in Panjabari area that includes a cultural museum, library and various facilities for preserving, demonstrating and performing cultural items, besides a children’s park. In addition to being Northeast India‘s largest cultural congregation, the Kalakshetra is also a major tourist spot in Guwahati. Built in the 1990s, the artistic excellence of Assam and rest of the north-eastern region is displayed here. There are eateries, places of worship, emporiums and open-air theatres within the sprawling Kalakshetra premises.
