Cities of Assam: As everyone knows Guwahati is called as the Gateway to the Northeast. It is the largest city in the entire Northeast India. An ancient city having reference in many Hindu Puranas and the Epic Mahabharata, Guwahati was known as Pragjyotishpur in the era of Mahabharata. It was the capital of the great Kamarupa kingdom.
Kamrupa kingdom was very famous under the rule of ASURA DYNASTY. The famous Asura king Narakasur had built the famous Kamakhya Temple at the top of Nilachal Hills. Once it was a part of Koch kingdom Coochbehar during the famous king of Kochbehar Naranarayan and his brother General Chilarai.
