1. (Abstract Noun) The Auniati Satra was established in Majuli in 1653 A.D. by the Ahom King Sultanla. He was given the name Jayaddhaja Singha after he adopted the Hindu Religion (Vaishnava) from the first Satradhikar of Auniati Satra Sri Sri Niranjan Deva. King Jayaddhaja Singha was endowed with 81,650 bighas of land in two different categories namely Devotra and Brohmotra to be looked after and maintained by the Satra. The slightly elevated land of Majuli, where this Satra was established, was full of Auni Paan (a kind of betel creeper plant). Ati means elevated place. There from the name Auniati Satra came into being. Dr. SriSri Pitambar Dev Goswami is present Satradhikar of Sri Sri Auniati Satra. উজনি অসমৰ প্ৰধান চাৰিখন ৰজাঘৰীয়া সত্ৰৰ এক সত্ৰ৷ জয়ধ্বজসিংহ ৰজাই 1578 শকত এই সত্ৰ মাজুলিত স্থাপন কৰে৷
