Guwahati: The gateway to the seven sisters

Guwahati is known as the gateway to the seven sisters because it acts as a gateway between the rest of India and the seven states in the North Eastern region of India. While Dispur is the capital of Assam, Guwahati is the largest city. It has many ancient Hindu temples, and is also known as “The City of Temples”.

Experience the food in Guwahati at restaurants like Khorika restaurant and Paradise restaurant. Assamese food, unlike the food in other parts of the country are not spicy, they are more bland. It’s a unique and great taste!

There are also quite a few sights to see, and these include:

-  Urra Tara temple: One of the most beautiful temples of the city, it is very beautiful. There are also ponds in the centre, which make it more picturesque.
