Gazpur was a place that was developed for keeping elephants. In spite of the fact that the place lies in ruins today, it is a fascinating spot worth going by. A lord controlling this piece of the state sooner or later of time had purchased the place to keep 1000 elephants that he had requested that his officers catch.
The request was in festivity of the formation of another town by the ruler. In like manner the place was named Hathigarh.
Before long the lord understood that his intend to catch 1000 elephants isn't conceivable, and he renamed the place as Gazpur. In spite of the fact that the place was never used to keep elephants, the name 'Gaz' shows that it was implied for elephants as in Assamese 'gaz' implies elephant.
