Assam, spread along the valley of the Brahmaputra river is a northeastern state of India. Assam, meaning undulating, is derived from the Ahoms (Dynasty). The Ahoms established a powerful kingdom that flourished along the south bank of the Brahmaputra river, which is one of the world’s widest rivers. Traditional story has it that the first king of Assam was Narakasur, son of Hindu God Vishnu and Dharitiri (mother earth). Assam is comprised of three main geographical areas: the Brahmaputra Valley, the Barak valley and the North Cachar Hills. Assam shares its border with states of Meghalaya, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Tripura, Mizoram and West Bengal and also international borders with Bhutan and Bangladesh. Since Independence of India in 1947, Assam has been fragmented into several smaller states. The neighbouring states of Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Mizoram, and Meghalaya were once part of Assam. Assam famous for its tea gardens and rare one-horned rhinoceros, is essentially nature based having many national parks, lakes, rivers, hot water springs, wild life sanctuaries, unique flora & fauna, thick wooded forest and vibrant and colourful cultural festivals which all are major components of tourist attractions. Some of the most attractive places to see in Assam are Manas / Kaziranga / Orang and Dibru Saikhowa National Parks, Kamakhya Temple, Haflong, Sibsagar, Majuli Island, Hajo and Agnigarh.
