Itanagar is the capital of the north-eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh. It is situated at the foothills of Himalayas and it gets its name from 'Fort of Bricks' (brick is called 'ita' in the Ahom language) which is situated in the heart of the city. The township is situated at 350 m above sea level. It represents a rich mixture of archeological wonders and institutions of great socio-cultural significance.
Owing to its mystique appeal and modern attitude, the city draws attention of tourists from round the globe. It is located in the shadow of the Himalayan ranges, which has snow covered peaks on the north-eastern side. On the other hand, the widespread stretch of the plains of the Brahmaputra River adjoins the city from the southern side. The city is also identified as Mayapur, erstwhile capital of the Jitri dynasty, established in the 11th century. Ita Fort, the chief historic testament of the region, dates back to that era. One of the major historic testimonies, the Fort of Ita, was built during the 14th or 15th century by King Ramachandra.
