India’s North East is a fascinating place, a land of pristine landscapes, virgin rain forests, crystal clear rivers and lakes. Combined with this natural beauty is the anthropological richness of the numerous native tribes that reside in this part of India.Due to the remoteness, it is often dubbed as a “Paradise Unexplored”.
Once the capital of Assam during the British Raj; Shillong became the capital of the new state of Meghalaya post-independence. Set among wooded hills, with quaint English style cottages and numerous churches and chapels; the city has quite an English charm floating about in the air. But the colonizers have left more than just villas and churches; the legacy that lives on here in the hills is Christianity. But with time Shillong has leapfrogged into the twenty first century like the rest of India.
