Charaideo was the first capital of the Ahom kingdom in Assam and the Maidam is the sacred burial ground and a place for ancestral Gods of the Ahom Kings. Also known as the Pyramids of Sivasagar in Assam, the site is located on the hills of Charaideo amid the lush green fields. Among 150+ maidams, only 30 maidams are protected by the Archaeological Survey of India and the rest are in ruins. The excellent architectural skills of the sculptors and masons on the medieval days are wonderful to look at. The vaults are decorated with floral carvings and with domed chambers. Earthen mounds are heaped upon them making them look like hillocks. On top of each hillock, small pavilions made of brick and stones are set up for visitors to take stroll freely. The octagonal dwarf wall encloses the whole maidam.

Charaideo Maidam Reviews & Ratings
Nice place. Quite silent and pretty nice views. You can get a pretty good experience of liking hiking by climbing the small mountains like landmass. There are historic buildings there as well.
Beautiful place surrounded by nature... Once the construction of the park is completed...it would be awesome.... Only thing that was lacking was some lights...which could have made the park even more beautiful during evening...
Nice place. May be regarded as pyramid of India. Less known to people from other parts of the world. Having amenities for food and toilets. More information should be displayed.
