Situated on the Surma (Barak) River, and known for its scenic beauty and natural splendour, Silchar is surrounded by Manipur on the east, Bangladesh on the west, Mizoram on the south and the Barail hills on the north. Located south of Guwahati at a distance of 313 Kms, this town is considered as the most important centre and gateway to Barak Valley in Assam.
Silchar is the 2nd largest town in Assam and is one of the most stable areas in the North-East and hence locally referred to as the Island of Peace. It is also one of the most developed areas with its own airport and institutes of higher education. Due to its picturesque location, Silchar is also used as the gateway to the neighbouring areas of Manipur and Mizoram. Approximately 90% residents of Silchar are Bengalis who speak the Sylheti dialect, the rest being Bishnupriya Manipuri, Dimasa Kachari (Barman), Manipuri (Meitei), Marwaris, Assamese and some tribal groups like Nagas.
