Assamese culture is a vibrant tapestry of various ethnic groups and their traditions. The predominant language is Assamese, but numerous other languages, such as Bodo and Mising, are also spoken. The traditional dress for women is the Mekhela Chador, while men wear the Dhoti and Gamosa.
Bihu, the most celebrated festival in Assam, is a symbol of Assamese identity and pride. It is celebrated thrice a year – Rongali Bihu in April marks the Assamese New Year and the arrival of spring, Kongali Bihu in October is a time of reflection and prayer for a good harvest, and Bhogali Bihu in January marks the end of the harvest season with feasting and merriment.
