Joysagar tank is situated at a distance of around 5 km south of the present Sivasagar town. This big tank measures approximately 498 Bighas of land. It is stated that Joysagar tank is the biggest man-made lake in Asia.

The Joysagar tank was excavated by Tai-Ahom King Rudra Singha (1696-1714 AD) to commemorate his mother's name Joymati wife of Gadapani later King Gadadhar Singha (1681-1695 AD).

One of the famous educational institutes of Upper Assam "Sivasagar College" stands on its bank other than some historical relics on the other sides of bank of the tank.

The water level of the tank almost remains higher than that of the encircling boundaries. HERITAGE JOYSAGAR is an organized conductor of Shikara ride on the water body of Joysagar tank.

The Shikara is one kind of rowing boat used for tourists on a relaxing sightseeing tour by which tourists get experience of calm and placid waters of some interior parts of lakes in Kashmir. The same soothing enjoyment facility is available now at Joysagar tank.

Heritage Joysagar is one of the most preferable picnic cum tourist spot of Assam since several years. No doubt, informations as provided vide his article of Mr. D. Bangthai will attract more turists in the coming days to Sivasagar. That means heritage like Jayasagar, Ranghar etc. directly helps in economic of Sivasagar as well as Assam. Now, sometimes questions arise about de-balancing of ecology being adopted modern equipment and technologies to provide more entertainment for tourists. On the one hand we are losing our eco-friends permanently getting revenues. So, people who really cares about ecosystem is in doubt, what to recommend next generation?? My kind request to all of my friends of Assamspider.com to find out a permanent solution.
