Guwahati is the largest city of Assam and North-Eastern India. It is one of the fast growing cities situated on the banks of river Brahmaputra and considered to be the gateway to North East India. The best time to visit Guwahati is October - March. You can cover the city in just a day and is one of the popular weekend getaways for the population in neighboring states.
Just as you leave the airport and move towards the city, you will see a statue of the famous singer and Padmabhushan awardee Bhupen Hazarika. A basic characteristic of the ethnic music of Assam is its descending scale which distinguishes it from the raga-based or folk music from the rest of India.
