“Calling all history buffs and architecture enthusiasts! Are you ready for a journey back in time to the land of the Tai Ahom people? Look no further than the Talatal Ghar in Rangpur, just 4 km from present-day Sivasagar, Assam. This monument is not only one of the grandest examples of Tai Ahom architecture, but it’s also the largest of all Tai Ahom monuments.

Now, before you get too excited, let me give you the scoop on the tour. Visitors are only allowed to scout through the ground floor, the first floor, and what remains of the 2nd and 3rd floors. Apparently, the floors of the Talatal Ghar below the ground have been sealed off because visitors tended to get lost within its mazy structure and were never heard of thereafter. So, it’s like a mini adventure within an adventure.

But, let’s talk about the history. The Talatal Ghar was built during the reign of Swargadeo Rudra Singha, who shifted the capital of the Ahom Kingdom from Garhgaon to Rangpur in AD 1702-03. For about a century thereafter, Rangpur remained the capital. It’s located in the western part of Sivasagar and the earliest constructions were commissioned by Swargadeo Rudra Singha in AD 1698. It served as the capital of the Ahom Kingdom and as its military-station. So, pack your sense of adventure and your love for history, and get ready to explore the Talatal Ghar!”
