Williamnagar Tourism

Williamnagar, located 244 Kms from Shillong, was formed around the former town of Simsanggre, which is based on the large plains of the Simsang River. A very remote area usually known for its abundance of natural beauty i.e. being flanked by the mountains and having a rich composition of both water and vegetation.

Williamnagar, the headquarters of the East Garo Hills district of Meghalaya, was named after Captain Williamson A. Sangma, the first Chief Minister of the State of Meghalaya. Williamnagar is of immense historical importance as it was here that the Garos made their last major resistance to the British invasion into Garo Hills during the year 1837.
