Asm: দেৰগাঁও dēragāon
‘God’s Village’ [Devagram] Town, Assam
From Asm: deor, ‘god’; and Asm: gāon, ‘village’
Its old name Devagram [From Skt: deva, ‘god’; and grama, ‘village’] is simply a translation.
The god in question is Shiva who has a temple here. It was first built in the 8-9thC and lay in ruins until a devotee found it in the river Dihing.
The 18thC Ahom king Rajeswar Singha brought the linga from the river and reconstructed the present temple, Negheriting Shiva Doul.
