Though the quality of life in Jorhat is not as good as other mega-cities, it is an area of less competition. One need not take a lot of workload. Migrating here for work will never be satisfactory here as there are much better places to go in search of work.

Jorhat is the cultural capital of Assam. It is a city which does not have the hustle and bustle that we see in Tier one cities. If you are looking for a peaceful life then Jorhat is the place. On clear summer days, one can see the distant Naga hills ranging out in the horizon.

Jorhat is the cultural capital of Assam, India. It is one of the best laid out towns in Upper Assam and being home to Asia’s oldest Tea Research Centre, The Tocklai Experimental Station, is known as the tea capital of Assam. The town is well connected to other parts of the country with good means of communication and transportation.

Jorhat is the knowledge capital of Assam. It has many historical monuments and is one of the leading tea-producing cities in Assam. In fact, Jorhat has a very significant literacy rate for women. The largest riverine island (Majuli) is in Jorhat. We have the Gibbon wildlife sanctuary, Gymkhana club, and more tourist attractions.
