Sivasagar was once the capital of the Ahom Kings. The Shans who came from Thailand through Northern Myanmar to this area in the early 13th century, ruled for 600 years till the British domination started in the 19th Century.

The ruins of the Ahom palaces, temples and pavilions still dot the landscape around Sivasagar and they present the richness of this highly evolved and advanced civilization. The Shiva temple has the highest spire in the whole of Assam.
