About 363 km from Guwahati, Sibsagar situated close to the site of Charaiadeo the ancient capital of the Ahom kings (1229 AD) who ruled Assam for six centuries. Their rule was consolidated by their domineering presence in the Assam valley and their presence in the Assam valley and their stiff resistance to the Mughal incursions. ln time their weakened position gave the British the advantage to wrest their Kingdom in 1826. A large watermark, established by Queen Madambika in 1734 AD, dominates the city. Strung around it are three temples, the most important of which is the Shivadol (quite possibly the tallest Shiv temple in the country) which is the focal point of the Shivratri Puja. Vishnudol and Devidol are the other two temples. Other notable tanks built by the Ahoms are the Joysagar, Gaurisagar and Rudrasagar.
