Rang Ghar, located in the Sivasagar district of Assam, India, is a historic structure dating back to the Ahom kingdom, which ruled the region from the 13th to the 19th century. Built-in the 18th century by Ahom king Pramatta Singha, Rang Ghar is one of the oldest surviving amphitheaters in Asia and stands as a symbol of Assam's rich cultural heritage.

The name "Rang Ghar" translates to "House of Entertainment" in the Assamese language. The structure served as a royal sports pavilion and entertainment venue for the Ahom kings and nobility, who watched traditional games, cultural performances, and other festivities from its elevated balconies.

Rang Ghar is renowned for its unique architectural design, with a double-storeyed structure featuring a sloping roof and decorative motifs reminiscent of Ahom craftsmanship. The amphitheater's red-brick facade and octagonal shape make it a distinctive landmark in Assam's architectural landscape.

Today, Rang Ghar stands as a popular tourist attraction and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors to the amphitheater can explore its historic significance, marvel at its architectural beauty, and imagine the grandeur of the events that once took place within its walls. Rang Ghar remains a testament to Assam's cultural legacy and serves as a reminder of its vibrant past.
