Original text on this topic:
Kuruwa is a small grassy tract on the north bank of the Brahmaputra river in Darrang district while Mandakata is a village with an ox-bow lake, a marsh and some grassland in Kamrup district. Both the areas are adjacent to each other. The rhino was a familiar animal of the area until about the late 1980s. At present a couple of rhinos are reported frequently. The area is not far from Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary and a few animals regularly move out of the sanctuary, often crossing the Brahmaputra river to Kuruwa.
