Literally meaning ‘The Ocean of Lord Shiva’, Sivasagar is one of the popular tourist attractions in Assam. This upper Assam city has served as the seat of the Ahom kings for over 6 centuries, so you can expect a lot of Ahom influence in the architecture and culture here. Sivasagar was reckoned as the Golden Land by the Ahoms, who by chance reached this gorgeous place and found it worthy enough to be their power seat. At present, the city is among the most important tea and oil trading centers in Assam. Sivasagar is a great place for history lovers. Shivadol, Gaurisagar Tank, Joysagar Tank and Temples, Rang Ghar, Charaideo, Ahom Museum, Talatal Ghar, and Gargaon Palace are the tourist attractions in Sivasagar.
