Guwahati - the gateway to the northeast, is the most important commercial city of the region. Situated on the banks of Brahmaputra, the city is is best explored on foot or local transport. Once in Guwahati, one should not miss the Kamkhya temple which is popular not only because of its religious beliefs but also because of its architecture. Assam State Museum and Guwahati Planetarium should not be missed! And ofcourse as a memento, one should take back Assam tea and mekhla chadar, the traditional attire of the Assamese!
