Located on the site of an ancient capital, the Assamese city of Guwahati holds a commanding position on the banks of the mighty Brahmaputra River. An important centre for the tea industry, the city retains a relaxed atmosphere and has a long religious heritage as a place of Hindu pilgrimage and learning. There are many interesting temples in Guwahati with the 10th century Janardhan Temple in the heart of the city and the Umananda Temple set on an island in the middle of the Brahmaputra two of the most important. The Kamakhya Temple outside of Guwahati used to be an ancient Khasi sacrificial site whilst the Assam State Museum has interesting collections of sculpture and local crafts. Most Brahmaputra River cruises commence from Guwahati and Kaziranga National Park is nearby. We have over 25 years’ experience planning tailor-made holidays and tours to India.
