The ancient cities of Pragyotishpura and Durjaya (North Guwahati) were the capitals of the ancient state of Kamarupa. Several ancient Hindu temples are located in the city, giving it the title of “The City of Temples,” such as the Kamakhya Temple, Ugratara Temple and Umananda Temple.
Between the banks of the Brahmaputra River and the foothills of the Shillong Plateau lies Guwahati, with LGB International Airport to the west and Narengi Town to the east. The area of North Guwahati, on the northern bank of the Brahmaputra, is steadily being absorbed into the city limits.
The myths and history of Guwahati go back many thousands of years. Although the exact date of the founding of the city is uncertain, references in India’s epics, Puranas, and other traditional histories lead many to believe that it is one of Asia’s ancient cities. The capital of the Kamarupa kingdom is situated in Guwahati by epigraphic sources. The Kalika Purana states that Kamarupa was occupied by the Kiratas.
The ancient Shakti temple of Goddess Kamakhya in Nilachal hill (an important seat of Tantric and Vajrayana Buddhism) is situated inside Guwahati, the ancient and special astrological temple Navagraha in Chitrachal Hill, and archaeological remains in Basistha and other mythological sites.
To the north of the metropolis flows the Brahmaputra river. The city borders the foothills of the Shillong plateau to the south and the Amchang Wildlife Sanctuary to the east. The Bharalu River flows right through the heart of the region, a tributary of the Brahmaputra. Dipor Bil, a permanent freshwater lake with no prominent inflows apart from the monsoon run-off from the hills that lie south of the lake, lies to the south-west of the city.The lake drains into Brahmaputra, 5 km (3.1 mi) to the north, and serves as the city’s natural stormwater reservoir. Within the city limits, there are also several hills.
