Typical scene from an Assamese town

Streets in Sualkuchi. Situated on the north bank of Brahmaputra just 35 km from Guwahati, Sualkuchi is a weaver's village famous for its silk weaving. It was called the Manchester of the East by the British. The village was declared a Handloom Heritage Village. It may soon become a rural tourism center under a UNDP project.
