Formerly known as Pragjyotishpur, or "the city of eastern lights", Guwahati is nestled between the Shivalik Hills and the Brahmaputra River, making it an ideal travel destination for families in India. 

With the first totally solar-powered railway station in India and Lokpriya Gopinath International Airport, the city is well-connected to other parts of the country. One of the most famous tourist attractions of Guwahati is the Goddess Kamakhya Temple, which sees thousands of devotees from all over the country, and world, visiting here.

Kamakhya Temple
Inarguably the very first recommendation you’d find in all Guwahati tour packages as the place to visit is the Goddess Kamakhya temple. Situated on the Nilanchal Hill in the western region of Guwahati in Assam, Kamakhya Temple is one of the four significant Shakti Peeth as (temples having the highest powers of divinity) in the country and is highly revered by the Hindu Tantrik sect. The temple has witnessed several demolitions as an act of war and has been created and rebuilt several times between the eighth and the seventeenth centuries.

Umananda Temple
Another significant place of worship and a popular tourist attraction in Guwahati is the Umananda temple. Dedicated to lord Shiv, this temple is majestically placed right in the middle of the Brahmaputra river, on Peacock Island. So, obviously, the only way to access the temple visit is by hopping on to one of the several boats available to transport tourists to the island. The island was originally built in 1694 A.D. by King Gadadhar Singha. However, it was destroyed by an earthquake in 1897 and later rebuilt by a wealthy local merchant. 


Assam State Zoo and Botanical Garden

Several Guwahati group tour packages include a visit to this place that offers a perfect combination of fun day outing and education for families and wildlife enthusiasts alike. 

Guwahati Planetarium

With its state-of-the-art facilities, the planetarium offers fascinating shows on astronomy, making it an engaging destination for both adults and children. Tourists here can look forward to enjoying a number of seminars and exhibitions along with witnessing some celestial events like an eclipse or a meteor shower closely when arrangements are made to attract a number of visitors.
