About Workshop Place
Pasighat (Arunachal Pradesh) Pasighat town is the ancestral homeland of the 'Adi' communities. In order to establish their control over this tribal area, the British had to fight four consecutive times from 1894 to 1912. With the view of administrative facilities on the remote areas of Abor Hills and northern part of Arunachal, the British settled Pasigat in 1911. From this point of view, Pasighat is the oldest city in Arunachal Pradesh, which is now the headquarters of East Siang district (Arunachal Pradesh). It is primarily the ancestral area of 'Adi' community's 'Pasi' people, hence its name is Pasighat. Arunachal's first college (1964) and All India Radio station (1966) was opened in Pasighat only. Before becoming the capital of Itanagar in 1974, the headquarters of Arunachal Pradesh's government used to be Shilong. Pasighat's nearest railway station Murkongselek is located at a distance of about 40 kilometers.
