Wish the approach roads were better. But once you are inside the experience is much better. Not as elaborate and grandiose as the mughal monuments but this monument probably tells us about the thrifty nature of the Ahom kings and their people friendly approach. Another reason why they were the longest running Indian dynasty.

This is little far from Sivasagar town but one may easily visit this palace. This speaks the rich history of the mighty Ahom kingdom which ruled for more than 600 years. Great place for history and heritage lover.

Kareng Ghar is the above the ground storeys of Rangpur Palace. Mainly Kareng Ghar has the rooms of Royal family members and servant quarters. Most of the palace is damaged now. Still they are testimony to the Ahom architecture. Organic cement made of Rice Flour, Duck Eggs, Fish etc. were used to construct this palace.

Kareng ghar is the name given to four storeys of Rangpur palace, which served as the palace of Ahom royal family. Kareng Ghar was mostly built of wood and most part of it is in ruins now. The ground floor has servant quarters, stables and store rooms. The upper floors had rooms where royal family members stayed. Most of the upper floor rooms are destroyed over time. Kareng ghar is a great piece of Ahom architecture.

Talatal Ghar is under the ground structure and Kareng Ghar is above the ground structure, together composing the Rangpur Palace - the abode of the Ahom rulers. It totally was a seven storeyed structure built of baked bricks and organic cement made with sticky rice powder and eggs of ducks. Some parts of the palace is in ruins. Yet it's a must visit place to get an insight into the architecture of Ahom rulers.

Kareng Ghar is located in Rangpur which is about 15 Kilometres away from Sibsagar Town. Kareng Ghar along with below ground structure Talatal Ghar forms the Rangpur Palace. Kareng ghar is a four storeyed structure. As of now, third and second floors are mostly in ruins. Only ground and first floor are in intact condition.
The Kareng Ghar was built mainly of wood and hence most of it have got destroyed over time. The lower section of Kareng Ghar has servant quarters, storage rooms and stables etc. The upper sections were used as residence by royal family members. This palace in Rangpur is the largest surviving piece of Ahom architecture. Hence it's worth a visit to see and appreciate the architecture of Assam during the medieval period.
