Old Guwahati

Area in Guwahati

This quaint area of Guwahati, bordering the Brahmaputra River, is best explored on foot. Walk past the beehive dome of the Courthouse, which rises above attractive Dighulipukhuri Park. The nearby Guwahati Planetarium looks somewhere between a mosque and a landed UFO and and offers entertainment in the form of space shows projected on a dome-like screen. A short walk due northwest takes you to the riverbank, where you can take in sweeping views of the Brahmaputra along a well-maintained promenade.
