Let’s start from Charaideo because this is the birthplace of Ahom dynasty and of course Assam.

You may think how Charaideo becomes the birthplace of Assam?

Ok, your question is right because we can’t define it directly as the birthplace of this state but in indirect viewpoint ‘Assam’ word evolved from ‘Ahom’ and Ahom established their first kingdom capital at this place.

So in that case, it will not be so wrong if we say Charaideo is the birthplace of Assam state.

This is very common that you already know; in 1253 first Ahom king Chaolung Sukaphaa established his kingdom capital at this place with his 9000 companions.

So, let’s not getting bored and see what the main things to watch are there: –

  • The Charaideo Maidam’s [Maidam is a Tai word, it consist Tombs of dead Ahom kings]

The house of color. The word ‘color’ here doesn’t mean about the component that you can touch or see.

It’s all about the feeling and the joy that Rang Ghar consist of.

Do you know my friend; Rang Ghar has the dignity of being the first human-made pavilion of Asia.

This is really a proud source for all our people of Assam.

Isn’t it?

In the mid of 18th century (around 1744-51) it was built by Swargadeo Pramatta Singha.

But before him his father Swargadeo Rudra Singha also built a form of it but his construction was not very high standard and built only with bamboo and wood.

Over time it was destroyed and rebuilt by son Pramatta Singha.

The Rang Ghar we have seen today is the form built by Pramatta Singha.

During the Ahom era, it was used to organize different programs like Bihu dance, Buffalo fight, Bulbul birds fight, Chickens fight, Human wrestling and many more different activities.

If you live in Assam and still haven’t visited this awesome place then we recommend you, visit soon.

It is situated in the very middle of Sivasagar town.

We believe, Rang Ghar will fill your mind full with happiness. Ok, now let’s go to our 3rd destination.

One roadway reached Kareng Ghar, which is 16 km away and another reached to Dikhow River, situated 7 km away from it.

However, today these two ways are closed due to visitor’s security reason.

Once Talatal Ghar was the security base of the Ahom kingdom, therefore it was built very mysteriously.
