Kareng Ghar and Talatal Ghar

Kareng Ghar is a seven storied palace, located about 14 km east of Sibsagar in Assam. Formerly the military station of the Ahom kings, it was built by Rudra Singha during 1696-1714. Uniqueness is that the palace has three underground floors known as Talatal Ghar. The upper storeys are known as Kareng Ghar. Besides, there are two underground tunnels connecting Talatal Ghar and the Gargaon palace with the Dikhow River. These tunnels, which served as the emergency exit, were later blocked by the East India Company.
