Rang Ghar, Sivasagar

First sports pavilion

Believed to be one of the oldest surviving amphitheatres in Asia, this doubled storied, elongated octagonal structure sports pavilion was built by the Ahom king Pramatta Singha as a pleasure house to watch and enjoy outdoor games.

Situated in the outskirts of Sivasagar, the Rang Ghar is a great example of ingenuity of Ahom architecture. The shape of Rang Ghar resembles an inverted royal Ahom long boat with three turrets at the centre.
