Assam is not one of the most widely known places in the world for sure. It is not one of the most important or developed region either. But this Indian state has a lot to offer – rich cultural experience, excellent natural beauty and much more!

All about Assam, India

Assam is a state in the North-Eastern part of India. It is one of those places which are not very popular but still very rich when it comes to other aspects. The culture, the people, the scenery of Assam, all are very beautiful. It is one of the most wonderful lands in India while it comes to nature. Here are some of the aspects of Assam-

Assam Map:

Assam contains a total of 28 districts. It is situated at the North-Eastern corner of India. Bangladesh, Bhutan and China are separated by only a national border from Assam at some places. Moreover, it is situated near the Himalayas.

Assam Weather:

The weather of Assam is truly pleasant and balanced. It is neither too hot during the summer nor too cold during the winter. The adequate amount of rainfall and humidity complements its perfect weather.

Assam As A Place:

Many people still often think of Assam as a very backward place. But that is far from the truth. It was true several years before, but during the recent years, Assam has proved to be one of the fastest developing states of India. A picture of the main city Guwahati of Assam has been added. Guwahati is often regarded as ‘The Gateway of North-East India’.

Festival Of Assam:

Bihu is the primary festival of Assam. It is basically of three types that are held in different times of the year, namely – Bohag or Rongali Bihu, Magh or Bhogali Bihu and Kati or Kongali Bihu. During this festival, the most exciting experience is the Bihu dance, of which an image has been shown above.

Assamese People:

The people of Assam are great; especially the villagers. The people living in the cities are not much different from those living in the cities of other places, if you know what I mean; but overall, the majority of the people in the state is very welcoming, helpful and good natured. Also, almost all the people are of Asian ethnicity, Brown and naturally good looking.

Assam Tourism:

Assam is often an attraction for tourists as it contains large number of ancient monuments and historical places and contents. The most important among them is the Kamakhya Temple. The state also has a number of different National Parks and Wild Sanctuaries; the most popular being the Kaziranga National Park.

Assam Education:

The rate of literate people is increasing day by day and has become significantly higher during the recent years. Assam also has a branch of the most prestigious Indian engineering college Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), called The Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati (IITG). It is also one of the world’s best according to the news reports.

Assam Scenery:

Assam is one of the few places on earth which are naturally beautiful. Almost every place of it contains something beautiful and natural; let it be trees, birds, forests, greenery, or any other thing.
