Ever since it was made the capital of the Assam Province in September 1874, Shillong accumulated a colonial identity that remains in shades till today. It was the agreeable climate of Shillong that attracted the weary Europeans and they put in a lot of their resources in developing the hill station. Today’s Shillong is a modern, aspiring Indian town but the charming bits of its colonial past linger in its neighbourhoods, especially in the form of architecture, monuments and other landmarks – reminding the observant traveller of its complex history and identity.
The Shillong Heritage Walk will take you through a 3-hour guided walk through many interesting spots of the city and will get you acquainted with the city’s colonial heritage and history. Walk, listen to stories and feel the City of Shillong as it was back in the day – narrated by your expert guides. This experience is also recommended for photographers.
