5  Most Amazing Historical Places of Sivasagar


1. Charaideo

The 1st and foremost reason is Charaideo. The first Ahom king Chawlung Sukaphaa established his kingdom at Charaideo in 1253 A.D.

From this place, we found the knowledge and the wisdom of the powerful Ahom’s. The body of the dead kings buried there with such respect [The tombs of Ahom kings are called Maidam or Charaideo Mmaidam].

I think, like this, no other such example would be found in any other place of Assam.

Charaideo Maidam’s are still standing today as an introduction to the history of great Ahom’s; who were the real creators of the Assam state.

Though today Charaideo is an autonomous district, but before 2016, It was a part of Sivasagar district.

2. Monasteries

There are a lot of temples in Sivasagar district but wait just for a while, As you think these temples are not very normal. Because all these temples built in a very strange way. 

Materials like Bora Rice (Sticky rice) and Duck eggs used to make all these monasteries. 

These old monasteries built before around 300-400 years ago. But it is quite strange to believe that these all are still standing proudly and carrying the sign of the great Assam history. 

Examples: Joydol, Devi temple, Vishnu temple, Shiva temple etc (Built during the ages of King Rudra Singha, Shiva Singha).


3. Sivasagar Tank

Here is another place to see, which is the Sivasagar tank. It is the oldest tank of the state. Queen Ambika made this tank, which is also one of the largest humans made tank in Asia. 

In 1734, Queen Ambika made this remark in the memory of her loving husband, Swargadeo Siva Singha

According to some calculation, this tank is Asia’s largest human-built tank. Today people from the country and abroad come here to see this great sign of Assam history.

Do you know, which is the first Pavilion of Asia?

Yes, It’s Rang Ghar. Rang Ghar is situated in Sivasagar district.

In the days of Ahom king Swargadeo Rudra Singha, This pavilion started to build, but due to his death, this work completed in the days of Swargadeo Pramatta Singha (Son of Rudra Singha)

Today, the Rang Ghar that is famous by the name of ‘Asia’s first pavilion’

Ahom kings used it to enjoy different games, organized during Rongali Bihu and Bhogali Bihu season

Games like Buffalo fight, birds fight and human wrestling was very popular at that time.

5. Talatal Ghar

Talatal Ghar is located in Sivasagar. Especially, built for the security base. 

This is the most confusing house ever built in Assam history. If a guy lost in here then there a lot of confusion comes for him/her to come out from it. 

However, today it is starting to lose its old characters. Talatal Ghar started to built in 1751 and completed in 1769, during the rule of Swargadeo Rajeswar Singha.

Talatal Ghar is a part of Sibsagar history [The town of Sivasagar called Sibsagar]. Do you know, There are two main roads at the bottom of Talatal Ghar?

one of the roads leads to the Kareng Ghar [which is 16 km away from the main place] and another leads to Dikhow river [It is 7 km away].
