369 kms from Guwahati – Sibsagar an historical city. Sibsagar was the capital of the mighty Ahoms, who ruled Assam for more than six hundred years before the advent of the British. The most remarkable landscape of the town is the 200 year old Sibsagar tank.

On its banks are three temples– the Shivadol, the Vishnudol and the Devidol– all three built by Queen Madambika, wife of Siva Singha, in the year 1734. The Shivadol is believed to be the highest Siva Temple in India, having a height of 104 feet and the perimeter 195 feet.

The tank is situated in the heart of the town but the water level is above the level of the town. Today Sibsagar is a fast developing town in commercial, industrial and educational activities.

The town, which literally means ‘the ocean of Lord Shiva’, is strewn with the tell-tale ruins of a powerful empire. The most remarkable landmark of the town is the 200 year old Sibsagar tank. On its banks are three significant temples – Shivadol, Vishnudol and Devidol. Modern Sibsagar is a fast developing urban settlement. It is the headquarters of the district Sibsagar, a leading tea and oil producing centre.
