    Assam: Chandubi festival to kick-off from January 1

    The 11th edition of the fest will witness display of ethnic culture and traditions including food court of ethnic dishes.

    Guwahati: The Chandubi festival is set to begin from January 1, 2021, which will continue for four days.

    The 11th edition of the fest will witness display of ethnic culture and traditions including food court of ethnic dishes.

    This festival attracts thousands of tourists from far and near and is held near Chandubi Lake, situated amid picturesque ambience in Kamrup district. It emerged as one of the major tourists attractions in the state.

    The Chandubi festival was cancelled this year in view of the anti-CAA protests, and now will be held from January 1 to January 4, 2021.

    This annual celebration kicked off almost a decade ago to turn the historic fresh water lake-created during a massive jolt in the earthquake in 1897 into an economically viable water body that would sustain different communities living around it.
