The Kamakhya Temple Guwahati

My only regret in our stay in Assam was that we could not visit Arunachal Pradesh. I do hope that I can make it some time soon!

The state has many beautiful spots. They say all visitors must cross the Brahmaputra 7 times or have to visit again!

The seven sisters as the eastern states are often referred to can rival most international tourist spots in terms of beauty and variety. The only draw back is connectivity. Orchids growing in Kalimpong, Shillong or snow in the higher reaches are places which even Indians have not cared to visit. Words cannot do justice to describe the mighty Teesta or the massive Brahmaputra. The handicrafts and music too are worth collecting. No write up about Assam is complete without mentioning the legendary Bhupen Hazarika.

Yet another must see site is the Kamakhya temple. We got a chance to visit the shrine and one that has reinforced my beliefs in folklore's... Read about it here:

Do visit this beautiful state. Winter is an ideal time. Plan today!
