    Iconic Sivasagar

    The Centre’s move to develop the town of Sivasagar, which was the capital of the Ahom Kingdom from 1699 to 1788, is a welcome development. It has brought a ray of hope for Assam to highlight the land as a global destination.

    The Centre’s decision is an acknowledgement to the rich cultural heritage of Sivasagar, which lies about 360 kilometres (224 miles) Northeast of Guwahati. The province was conquered by the British in 1825 and was completely annexed in 1826.

    It needs to be mentioned that the saffron party-led National Democratic Alliance government’s decision to privatise a few heritages sites of Assam including the Ranghar triggered huge resentment across the state. People opposed the Centre’s decision and demanded to withdraw the move and provide an opportunity to the locals for the maintenance.

    Not only Sivasagar but many places of the state, which has a remarkable history, need such recognition and a platform in the international arena to showcase its rich culture and history. Assam has a glorious heritage dating back to prehistoric days and the state has been able to retain its historic monuments and relics.

    The entire area, which is dotted with historical monuments of the Ahom Kingdom comprising royal places and tombs, shrines including the most famous Shiva Doul provides immense prospects for tourism development. Given its proximity to Kaziranga and Majuli, it is possible to develop a tourist circuit incorporating all these attractions.

    The government’s announcement, if executed in letter and spirit within a stipulated time, will definitely boost the economy of the region and generate the employment opportunity.
