bputra.jpg (8827 bytes) Situated beside the impressively wide and muddy, Brahmaputra River, Guwahati is Assam’s sleepy capital. Once known as Pragjyotishpura (the Eastern City of Light) and mentioned in the Mahabharata, it has long been the most important town in the region. It’s now the service centre for the oil industry and tea plantations; the world’s largest tea auctions are held here. Guwahati is a pleasant, relaxed place. There are numerous ancient Hindu temples in and around the town, but its main importance is as the gateway to the whole of the north-eastern region.
