The place of Guwahati or Gauhati is the capital city of the state of Assam in the northeast of India and is well connected by railways and flights from all across India. The city of Guwahati was formerly known as Pragjyotishpur which translates to the City of Eastern Light.
The term Guwahati has its etymological root derived from two Assamese words namely “Guwa,” which means – areca nuts and the second term “Haat,” meaning a market. The reason for this is the abundance of areca nuts that were found along this region. Dispur which is a city in Assam is the political capital of Assam. Situated admist mountains and hills, the beautiful city of Guwahati is a major gateway to the other northeastern states thus its an important link for all of your northeast India travel.
The city of Guwahati experiences an annual rainfall of around 180 cm from the months of May to the time of September while the summer season temperatures range from 22 to 38°C in winters the mercury ranges from 10 to 25°C. The best time to visit Gauhati is from between the months of October to April.
There is magical aura that still lingers over the city from the ancient times. The demon king Narkasura is said to have built this ancient city. A big reason for Guwahati’s magical charm is it being the ancient ‘Kamrup’, the birthplace of Kamdeva, the God of Love and the famous kamakhya devi temple.
Millions of people each year traverse through the city for their livelihood, travels or for religious purposes. Kamakhya Temple, located at the top of the Nilachal Hill and dedicated to Goddess Kamakhya, plays host to thousands of devotees each day. Lakhs of pilgrims and tourists throng to this holy site during the Ambubachi Mela each year. Apart from the Temple of Kamakhya, other sacred temples such as Umananda and Navagraha are also present in the city.
Many tourists who are looking to visit Shillong and neighbouring states use Guwahati as a transit point and start their journey from this city as it is well connected through roads, rails and air. Among the most common are the tourists visiting Shillong and Meghalaya.
These tourists start their journey to Shillong from Guwahati airport or railway station as Shillong is not so well connected and has no railway or a working airport due to its heinous weather and cloud formations which makes it difficult for flights. Thus flights remain cancelled most of the time there. The journey to Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya takes around 3 to 4 hours along mountain roads and lush green valleys which is a sight to experience for most tourists.
