Guwahati: - Guwahati is the largest City in the state of Assam. It is one of the major riverine port cities and the city is undergoing a mad surge of developments these days. The city acts as a gateway to the northeastern India. The city acts as the starting block for most itineraries of the northeast. Guwahati is a prosaic heap of glass and concrete for the most part but there are sprinkles of interesting temples are and monuments to explore during the stay. One can salvage a generous amount of the traditional local flavor which lingers amidst the suburban ponds, small single storey houses, palm trees, and old colonial-era mansions.
