Laitumkhrah Shillong is a place that you don’t find often because the place has so many goods and there are structures and institutions you need time to take in and enjoy. Laitumkhrah Shillong took its present colour and shape long ago. In the ancient times, this place was a village and the Khasi tribes predominantly resided here. Lait in Khasi means ‘free’ and umkhrah is the name of a river here that originates from here. This place leads to Happy valley, Umpling and New colony. You may find accommodation here in one of the finest places. The spending of your time here is going to be an experience of a lifetime. There were many old buildings here which gave rise to the reformed architecture of the new buildings that sprang up but all of them have retained their old charm. In a way, this place is quaint and serene though this area is colder than other segments of Shillong.
Holy ground is a cemetery here that is visited by the people to get some peace of mind and to connect with the calmness that is inherent in nature. Ramakrishna mission Shillong is also situated here where the followers of the order find a place to connect with the master. There are many institutions of higher and technical education located here and one of them is the NIT that offers courses on electronics and carpentry apart from other courses. Here there is one Catholic Church that happens to be the largest churches in India. Once you are in Shillong you should get yourself accustomed to the culture of this place which is quite alien to the rest of India. People here, mostly tribals, have western leanings reflected in their music, attitude, values and behaviour. There is a matriarchal society here and that gives special emphasis on the emancipation and empowerment of women.
