  1. An excellent post. Many years ago when in India, we did NOT get to Assam, sadly: your blog reveals we made a mistake not to visit. I will be back, no problem. I am glad you like “In search of unusual destinations”. Phil.

  2. I love the 2 very pinkish / terracotta photos, one of the steps ( going UP I thought!), and the underground large space with the arched ceiling. Really atmospheric. Fascinating that your say the kings watched Elephant fights, I have never heard that before. I didn’t even know that elephants would fight each other! Very interesting post, thank you!
