Geographical  Profile of Jorhat
 

Stretching northeast from Guwahati along the valley, Assam penetrates the complex Brahmaputra watersheds at the eastern extremity of the Himalayas, in the area known as Upper Assam. Jorhat is the main centre for the region, with an airport and road connections, and acts as the gateway to Kaziranga, Nagaland and northern Arunachal Pradesh. Although not particularly attractive to tourists in itself, Jorhat makes a good base for exploring the unique Vaishnavite culture of Majuli, the largest river island in the world. North of Jorhat lies Sibsagar, former capital of the Ahoms and home to numerous tombs, temples and palaces.
