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.
