Rang Ghar to be promoted to make it part of world tourism map: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma

Guwahati:  Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has said ‘Rang Ghar’ will be promoted to make it a part of the world tourism map.

" To promote Rang Ghar, Asia's first amphitheater, and place it firmly in world tourism map, met leading citizens of Sivasagar seeking their suggestions," the CM tweeted.

"PWD has prepared a project proposal entailing acquiring 83 bigha land for improving facilities in the iconic structure," he said.

Rang Ghar is a  two-storeyed building which once served as the royal sports-pavilion where Ahom kings and nobles were spectators at games like buffalo fights and other sports at Rupahi Pathar (pathar meaning "field" in Assamese) - particularly during the Rongali Bihu festival in the Ahom capital of Rangpur.

It is three kilometres (1.9 mi) away from the center of Sivasagar Town.

 Situated by the side of the Assam Trunk Road, it lies to the northeast of the Rangpur Palace, a seven-storied royal complex comprising the Talatal Ghar and the Kareng Ghar.
