Hailakandi Overview

Hailakandi is one of the districts located in the Barak Valley in the north-eastern state of Assam. The destination is diversified by plains and hills, and is connected with the rest of the state through North Cachar Hills.

Hailakandi is surrounded by River Barak and Cachar District in the north and east, Mizoram in the south and east and Karimganj in the west. The district bears a cultural link-up with South East Asia on one hand and the mainland of India on the other.

Before the emergence of Hailakandi as a district in 1989, it was a Civil Sub-Division under Cachar District. The history of the region dates back to the British rule in India. During their rule, many tea gardens and road transportation were developed in Hailakandi. Moreover, many people of the district took part in the Civil Disobedience Movement and Quit India Movement.

Hailakandi is associated with various myths. The dyke constructed in the Barak Valley to protect the land from flood was called Ail or Hail. Kandi in Bodokachari language means ‘temporary paddy land’ and the destination was named as Hailkandi and later as Hailakandi.

Historians also believe that the destination was named from the Kuki word ‘Halam’ and ‘Kundia’, which means a small state and a plot of land for temporary ploughing respectively. Besides, the name is also derived from the staple food crop Sali Paddy, which is grown abundantly here. From Sailkandi, the district came to be known as Hailakandi.

The cultural heritage and tradition of Hailakandi is reflected in its diverse caste, creed and religion. It is inhabited by various communities including Bishnupriya, Chakm, Kuki, Meitei, Reang and the indigenous Muslims. Bengali, the official language of the district, is spoken by majority of population along with Manipuri. Siddyashar Bari Sibmandir located in Badarpur Ghat and Pach Pirr Mukam in South Hailakandi are the most popular tourist attractions of Hailakandi.
