Shillong

Before Meghalaya was split into a new state Shillong used to be the capital of Assam. It is one of the beautiful places in Northeastern India and now a capital of Meghalaya. The place is covered by pine trees and has a pretty mild climate which is different from other corners of the country. Approximately 1496 meters above the sea level the city of Shillong has often been referred to as the Scotland of East. Travelling to this place would still showcase the British legacy from the food habits and the architecture of the region. The beauty of the place gets enhanced with the slating roofs and Assamese style homes which have several windows and are made of wood. Read more about Shillong
