Swargadeo Rudra Singha: An Architect Of Ancient Assam

THE Ahom dynasty that entered into the then Assam (Pragjyotishpur) in 1228 CE is considered as the torchbearer of new evolutions on the bank of the mighty Brahmaputra through their state-of-the-art skills in ruling the subjects, in convening new social systems, in building architectural heritages, in enriching the economic and political systems and in bringing a cultural revolution. The Ahom kingdom that was first established by Swargadeo Sukapha was later expanded and enlarged by Swargadeo Pratap Singha and it was Swargadeo Rudra Singha who added the charm of a cultural influence into the state and its subjects. It was this influential king of the Ahom dynasty who had first attempted at building a cultural and social bridge with other Indian states to introduce new dimensions into the Assamese culture. There had always been an effort to invest time and efforts to bring a fruitful outcome in the Ahom rulers and carrying this tradition forward. Rudra Singha too tried to select the best of the culturally promising artisans from among his subjects and engage them in the practice and production of notable artistic and cultural outputs.
