About Shillong

Shillong, Meghalaya's capital, is located in the state's eastern region. The city, a hill station, is perched at a height of 1,520 metres (4,990 feet) above sea level. It is located on a plateau bordered on the north by the Umiam Canyon and on the northwest by the massive Diengiei Hills, which reach a height of 1,823 metres (6077 feet) over sea level. It is irrigated by the Umshyrpi and Umkhra rivers, which eventually combine to form the Umiam River. Guwahati is approximately 104 km from Shillong, Kaziranga is 295 km, Siliguri is 578 km, and Darjeeling is 658 km away. Shillong was a tiny village until it was elevated to the status of the Khasi and Jaintia hills' new municipal station in 1864. For many years, it served as the summer capital of Assam and Eastern Bengal. It was selected as the location of the new government's capital in 1874 when Assam was created as a Chief Commissioner's Province. The city had to be rebuilt after an earthquake in 1897 completely destroyed it. Shillong was named Meghalaya's capital in January 1972. Shillong Peak, the city's highest point, is situated 5 km to the city’s southern side and has a height of 1961 metres (6,433 ft). It is mostly surrounded by fog since it is the tallest point in the area. The summit itself is not particularly high; rather, it is semi-circular, resembling a crown set on the Shillong Hill's broad and flat summit. The Upper Shillong Road or the Jowai Road may be used to reach the top.

About Varanasi

Varanasi, also known as Benaras or Kashi, is one of the holiest cities and an important pilgrimage site for Hindus. It has also been a significant centre of learning since time immemorial. The English writer and literary figure Mark Twain, who was fascinated by the mythology of Benaras, once penned the following: "Benaras is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend and looks twice as old as all of them put together." The city is situated on the banks of the river Ganga, and many pilgrims flock to the city to take a holy dip in its waters. It is home to the numerous ghats that are abuzz with activity throughout the year. Hindus believe that anyone fortunate to pass away in Varanasi would be blessed and released from the cycle of birth and rebirth. One can shop for the famous Benarasi sarees in the many shops lining the narrow lanes of Varanasi. The city is also home to ‘Sarnath,’ where Lord Buddha gave his first sermon after attaining enlightenment.
