The Palaces and Temples, Sivasagar

Step back in time in Assam’s ancient capital soaking in the architecture of a glorious bygone era.

The erstwhile rulers of Assam or, Asom as they used to call it came originally from Yunan, through the region of Northern Thailand. Being great administrators and benevolent rulers, they won over the local chieftains and established their rule throughout the Brahmaputra River valley.

At Sibsagar they established their capital and built their palaces, temples and amphitheatres. A great destination to witness their unique style of architecture combining South East Asian, Bengali and Mughal styles of architecture seen in the buildings of the bygone era.
