Festivals of Assam


Festival calendar

Festivals and holidays of the Hindu calender

In Assam, the festivals and holidays of the Hindu calendar are the most important because most of the locals are Hindu. We will be happy to discuss in person which festivals exactly fall within your travel time frame – as the festivals are based on different lunar calendars and are also weighted differently from temple to temple, it is hardly possible to provide a generally valid overview. Of course, the well-known Muslim holidays are also very important. Public holidays in Assam that are independent of the religions are “Republic Day” on January 26, Independence Day on August 15 and Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday on October 2.
