Default Guwahati getaways: Madan Kamdev, Doul Govinda, Aswaklanta etc

A part of Guwahati that falls under the metropolitan area but so far been able to remain untouched by rampent development is its north. Called Uttor(North) Guwahati locally, it has many historic sites to explore or just enjoy the countryside.

These little boys of diffrent ages were sitting on top of a culvert wall in midst of rice fields when i crossed them, stopped, backed my car and asked them to pose for a snap. Diffrent emotions in their faces.

Well this was a slow quiet drive through villages, so nothing much to say, just enjoy the surrounding.

It looks a lot like Kerala, esp Rural Palakkad.

@San Phrangmung, hope I am not ruining your thread. These pics are taken with my phone and it's Madathara, Rural Trivandrum/Kollam district.
