Pyramids of Assam

Connected to the heritage of the mound burial system of the Ahom dynasty, royal moidams are found exclusively at Charaideo, near Sibasagar, whereas other moidams are found scattered in the region between Jorhat and Dibrugarh towns. As per Ahom traditions, after the demise of the Kings, their bodies used to be kept in Moidams.

Archeologist believed that moidams were a double storied hemispherical building, with an arced entrance and a raised platform at the centre where the body was laid to rest. A small octagonal door sealed the entry to the moidam.
