The Kachari Ruins comprise ancient monoliths and contain remnants of the Kachari kingdom’s structure. It houses myriad temples, reservoirs, and tanks and was named as the ‘Brick City’ by European scholars. It was the kingdom of Dimasa Kachari rulers during the medieval era and is a major tourist attraction now. The territory was constructed near the sacred Mahu River and the Naga hills. The kingdom emphasizes on the cult of fertility.

The Kachari Ruins

The Kachari Ruins are located in Dimapur, Nagaland. Their history dates back to the 10th century when they appeared during the Kachari civilization. The Kachari Ruins is a series of mushroom domed pillars. They were created by the Kachari Kingdom, which ruled here before the Ahom invasion into the territory during the 13th Century AD. Their origin and purpose are largely mysterious.

The pillars are not well maintained. Some pillars still stand in all their glory but others have crumbled down. It is believed that a game similar to chess was played there with the mushroom domes. It is a glory of the North East and the tourism department of Nagaland.
