    well, that will totally contribute to Assam tourism. With some best tourist places and temples, the state of Assam is a must-visit destination for the tourists planning their trip to northeast India. You can first explore the city of Guwahati with your family and visit the great Kamakhya temple for the blessing of the goddess.
