Welcome to Shillong

General Information About Shillong

Shillong is the capital city and a hill station located in the north – eastern state of Meghalaya. It is at an altitude of 1496 metres above sea level. ‘Lum Shyllong’, which is at an altitude of 6,447 metres above sea level, is the highest point of this place. 

It is often referred to as the ‘Scotland of the East’ because it is believed that, in the past the European settlers were reminded of Scotland by the waterfalls and hills surrounding the town. The headquarters of the East Khasi Hills district is located at this place.

Shillong remained the capital of Assam until the new state of Meghalaya was formed on 21st January, 1972. After the division of both the states, Shillong became the capital of Meghalaya and Dispur in Guwahati was made the capital of Assam.

Most of the people living in Shillong belong to the Khasi tribe and follow Christianity. Bengalis and Nepalis also live in this place in significant numbers. The Khasi society is a matriarchal one, where the mother is the head of the family and the children write her surname. The property is passed on to the youngest daughter.

 

The best time to visit the destination is from July to December.
