The Bangalpukhari Tank is indeed a very renowned historical tank which is located in the southern part of the city of Jorhat. This is primarily a man-made reservoir. As per the historians, the history of this man made reservoir goes back to the year 1739 when a man known as Badam Barphukan was murdered by Ruppsing Bangal. Then later on Ruppsing Bangal originally built this reservoir with the reward money he received as a reward. People do not use the water of this reservoir, as they feel it was built with the money associated with the murder of an individual.
