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.
