About

The Ranghar was constructed to watch cultural programs and games organized in the Rupahi Pathar. Islamic architecture is clearly visible in the octagonal-shaped structure supported by rows of massive columns and semi-circular arches. You’d be fascinated to know that the structure is built with mortar made from Bora Chaul – a sticky variety of rice, pulses called Maati Maah, a fish named Borali Mach, and eggs. Visit and explore this unique structure glued together with edible items!

Things to see

  • The series of arches adorned with floral and geometrical designs.
  • The beautiful Rupahi Pathar currently maintained as manicured lawns.
  • An Ahom royal long boat with Makara endings & a trefoil arch canopy in the centre adorning the roof.
  • The two beautiful stone-carved crocodile structures on either side of the entrance.
