6th December 2018   -   9th December 2018
Guwahati, India


IRACON moves for the 1st time to the Northeastern part of the India. Welcome to Guwahati, “the gateway to the North-East India”. It is the largest city in Assam and Northeast India, a major reverine port city and one of the fastest growing cities in India. It is situated between the banks of the Brahmaputra River and the foothills of the Shillong plateau. The ancient cities of Pragjyotishpura (Guwahati) and Durjaya (North Guwahati) were the capitals of the ancient state of Kamrupa under the Varman and Pala dynasties. Many ancient Hindu temples are in the city, giving it the name “City of Temples”. Guwahati’s myths and history go back several thousands of years. Although the exact date of the city’s beginning is unknown, references in the epics, Puranas and other traditional histories of India, lead many to assume that it is one of the ancient cities of Asia. Epigraphic sources place the capitals of many ancient kingdoms in Guwahati. It was the capital of the kings Narakasura and Bhagadatta according to the Mahabharatha. Now Guwahati is an important and happening city because of the centre’s “Act East Policy” and it is developing at rapid pace.
