Assam is the largest tea producing state in India, accounting to almost 50 percent of the total production. The state is surrounded by mountains and hills on all sides that often loom in the distant horizon and adds to the scenery. The forests of Assam have the presence of the One-horned Asiatic rhino, which is not only the state animal but is also a symbol that represents this land. Gamosa is another famous woven motif which also symbolizes Assamese culture and has a wide usage. Various species of primates such as hoolock gibbons, Assamese macaque, pig-tailed monkeys, capped langurs and golden langurs can be also seen in the wild. Bishnupriya Manipuris of Manipur also settled in this area during Burmese invasion and Anglo-Burmese wars. The Santhal and Munda tribe from Central India who were brought by the British to work in the tea estates also became part of the Assamese society. This festival showcases Bhaona, or traditional dance dramas that depict tales from Hindu mythology. Assam is the second place in the world where petroleum was discovered.
