Lumding

3.3
Lumding is a town with municipal board in Hojai district in the Indian state of Assam.EtymologyThe word 'Lumding' owes its roots to a couple of Dimasa words 'Lama' and 'Ding' connoting 'straight pathway'. The word Lumding is also believed to be from Khasi words 'loom' and 'ding' meaning lack or scarcity of water, which is a true problem here specially during summer. There's another Railway station adjacent to it with the same root word "Lama" (Path), it is Lamasakhong (Valley of the small pathways) which is just a few kilometers away from Lumding.HistoryOver the years Lumding has developed into township. The railway township had always enjoyed scant rainfall during the rainy season every year, although the trend has significantly altered over the past few decades. Also Lumding was used as a radar station during World War II by British.TransportRailwayLumding railway division is famous for being one of the bigger divisional headquarters of the North East Frontier Railway and the biggest junction in the North-Eastern part of the country. The town is also the gateway to the visually enchanting Lumding-Badarpur hill-tract between Lumding and Badarpur. The track has been included as a UNESCO Heritage site a few years back.
