History Literally meaning the ‘Abode of Clouds’, the state of Meghalaya has always been a site of archaeological interest as it is believed that the region was inhabited since the Neolithic times. Before the onset of the British rule in the 19th century, the region was dominated by Khasi, Garo and Jaintia tribes. In 1835, the British amalgamated Meghalaya with Assam that also affected the former’s sovereignty even after India became independent. Soon afterwards, in 1970, a movement for a separate state was instigated. On 2nd April, 1970, a semi-independent state of Meghalaya was carved out of Assam followed by attaining full statehood on 21st January, 1972.
