Sivasagar, the land of heritage, culture, temples, palaces and sacred tanks of the Ahom era coupled with exquisite natural beauty was the birth place and the capital of Ahom Kingdom in India for about six centuries, from where the state of Assam derives its name. In here dwells the true soul of Assam.
