Assam: An Overview

Assam is a state known for its tribal culture. Hence, most of the festivals celebrated are influenced by tribal culture. Unique attire, dancing and singing are highlights of such celebrations. Some of the prominent festivals of Assam include Bihu, Ambubachi Festival, The Majuli Festival, Dehing Patkai, Tea Festival, Raas Lila in Majuli and Baishagu Festival.

  • Bihu is a famous festival in Assam. It marks the beginning of the agricultural season. It involves people offering the first crop to the God, Brai Shibrai, wearing traditional attires, creating a bonfire and singing folk songs.

  • The Ambubachi Festival is associated with the Kamakhya Temple in Guwahati. It is a festival related to tantric practices and spans four days. People visit the temple and explore the stalls set up at the fair.

  • The Majuli Festival is another event related to tribals. It involves gathering of different tribes, locals displaying the handcrafts to tourists and several cultural activities.

  • Tea Festival, as the name suggests, is all about tea. The festival spans three days and is held in Jorhat, a place known for its tea. You can taste different types of teas at this festival.

  • Raas Lila in Majuli is a festival associated with Lord Krishna. It involves the people of Majuli performing plays dedicated to Lord Krishna. The festival is a combination of spirituality, mythology and culture.
