This is my visit to Guwahati and I am loving the city and glad to be in this soil during the Ambubachi Mela in Maa Kamakhyas lap. On the way to the hotel from Airport we tried local Assamese cuisines at an ethnic restaurant and I like the healthy and tasty way it is cooked and served. I throughly enjoyed the cuisines specially the pork. Glad to be accorded warm welcome here at Community Reception & Interaction at Moni Kumar Subba Bhawan with Axomiya Phoolam gamoocha and Jhapi.
