Kareng Ghar, Sivsagar Overview

Kareng is a historical tourist site in Sivasagar. It is a former royal palace that was built by the Ahom dynasty in Assam. It is one of the finest examples of the Ahom architecture. The whole structure of Kareng Ghar was built of wood and stones. The use of such material was an amazing example of engineering in the previous times.

Why Is It Famous?

Kareng Ghar is popular due to many reasons. The main reason for it to gain fame is the material used for its construction. Initially, this grand building was built using wood and stones. Beautiful carvings were done on the interior walls of the palace. There are many wings in the palace in the long corridor. These wings served as the stables, servants’ apartments, and the main prayer hall where the entire royal family gathered for prayers.
