Silchar

Cachar , Assam

Sichar is the headquarters of the Cachar district in the beautiful and unique state of Assam. It is also the economic gateway to the state of Mizoram and part of Manipur. Thus Silchar today is one of the most important places in Assam and it also boasts of a sizeable population that decided to settle here because of the rapid economic growth of this place. This is one place in the very disturbed North East which has always been politically stable and thus is called the Island of Peace. The formation of Silchar is purely out of need. During the time of the British the ships you to dock at the bank of the River Barak. This place became a hub of trade and economic activity in this region and slowly people came here and settled down due to the opportunity that this place provided to all. People started to refer to the place as "Shiler Chor", meaning a bank of stone which slowly changed into the modern name of Silchar today. Today this is the one place which has carried on being a centre of trade. Being in Assam, it definitely has its share of verdant greenery and the tropical evergreen wonders. But Silchar will be famous as the most important town in this region as it provides routes for three states simultaneously. In the 1850s, British tea planters re-discovered the game polo in Manipur on the Burmese border with India. The first polo club in the world was formed at Silchar. This place is still one of the attractions in a ton which is otherwise extremely busy throughout the year for being so useful to the economy of this state.
