History Tucked in the north-eastern part of India, Assam finds its mention in the inscriptions of Samudragupta – dating back to the AD 4th century. The land was reigned by six dynasties – by Varmanas, Mlechcha and Kamarupa-Palasin in the ancient times i.e. from AD 350-1100 and by Ahoms, Sutiya and Koch during the period from 1187 to 1826 CE. During the early 20th century, anti-colonial Assamese actively participated in the protests against the British rule. Post independence, however, Government of India disintegrated the state into seven sisters in the interest of regional tribal aspirations. Nonetheless, the region is laden with historical remains, expansive tea gardens and hilly terrains to explore. Attractions Assam is a land of natural charm where flora and fauna go hand in hand. Apart from its refreshing greenery, the state is also a proud possessor of one-horned rhinos that are housed in Kaziranga National Park – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Believed to be the home of saint Vasishtha, Basistha Ashram is an ideal spot for family picnics and outings. Umananda Temple, which is positioned on the Peacock Island and surrounded by the Brahmaputra River is one of the most picturesque locations of the state.
