Sivasagar Tour

On its banks are three temples-- the Shivadol, the Vishnudol and the Devidol-- all three built by Queen Madambika, wife of Siva Singha, in the year 1734. The Shivadol is believed to be the highest Siva Temple in India, having a height of 104 feet and the perimeter 195 feet.

The tank is situated in the heart of the town but the water level is above the level of the town. Today Sibsagar is a fast developing town in commercial, industrial and educational activities.
