About Palasbari

Day3: Morning 9ish after a quickbreakfast, me and Manoj left for Palasbari- a small village- culturally important for the local Assamese for the annual Durga puja festival held here. This village is located another 20 kilometers ahead of the airport along the banks of Brahmaputra. Even though this one isn’t exactly a tourist place, a drive away from the hustle bustle of the city through the greenery and along the Brahmaputra river would satisfy any nature lovers thirst! On the way back Manoj took me to see the remaining places left to see in Guwahati, first of which was the Basistha ashram- 12 km southeast of Guwahati. It stands on a pretty spot that marks the confluence of 3 streams with a waterfall and groves of trees around it. This is said to be the site of the ashram of sage Vashistha- a famous character in Ramayana. Next was the Assam state museum- the largest in Northeast which was gonna provide me a lot of useful info about the tribes and their culture for my thesis report write up. The museum which is just east of the railway station, has fine reconstruction of tribal villages and a comprehensive collection of local handicrafts and a gallery of medieval stone and bronze sculptures which were excavated from Ambari- an archaeological site in the heart of the city. This state museum has the best collection of tribal wares, sculptures, musical instruments, cane work, jewellery, masks etc etc. After visiting the science centre which had nothing that I had not seen in the numerous science centres that I had already visited in many cities, I had a quiet stroll around Guwahati’s Ambari area for some handicrafts shopping in the Govt emporia in this area followed by a walk in Dighali Pukhari Lake Close by.
