Rang Ghar

Monument in Sivasagar

About 4km south along AT Rd from central Sivasagar, approximately 2km past a WWII-era metal lift-bridge, look right to see the rather beautiful Rang Ghar, a two-storey, oval-shaped pavilion that has now been impeccably restored and stands amid pretty lawns. Its gleaming sienna exterior sports some subtle stucco work in the form of floral motifs. The interiors are mostly unadorned, but you can walk up to the top floor, from where the Ahom monarchs once watched buffalo and elephant fights.
