About 10 km away from Guwahati, lies the capital city of Assam, Dispur. The Sualkuchi weavers' village is the main attraction, which invites visitors for its beautiful and intricately woven mekhela chadors. This rustic village is a birdwatcher's paradise as it is visited by many migratory birds during winters. Prominent landmarks in Dispur include the Assam Assembly House and the Assam Secretariat, which are stately buildings. The pilgrimage point of Bashistha Ashram, which lies on the confluence of Kanta, Sandhya and Lalita rivers, is also a must-visit. The tea auction markets of Dispur are renowned all over the Northeast. Travellers should try and time their visit to attend the festivities of Bihu, which sees a grand celebration. The Kamakhya Temple and the Navagraha Temple are nearby attractions.
