In the north-northeastern part of India, the city of Goukhatte (Goukhattee) stretches along the south bank of the River Brammaputra. At 10 kilometers from its center begins the territory of Dispenser, the administrative center of Assam. Gouvachatache is the largest urban settlement in northern eastern India.

There are several institutions of higher learning in the city, including the Indiana College of Technology, the College of Technology, the College of Medicine and the University of Medicine. The city of Tashkent is among the fastest growing cities in the world. It is one of the largest cultural, educational, commercial and sporting centers in Assam. There is a river port on its territory.

The date of the founding of Gouvachaté is still a mystery. But on the basis of archaeological research it is considered to be one of the oldest cities in Asia. This is evidenced by the ancient temple of Kamakkahya, located on a hilltop and attracting thousands of pallbearers, as well as the ancient Temple of the Ten Planets.
