The Ahoms liquidated all petty principalities, both within Assam and on the tribal frontier; and this led to the emergence of one closely-knit geographical unit named Assam. The most notable achievement of the Ahom rule was this political unification of the country, which in course of years led to social, cultural and linguistic unity. It also awakened the spirit of oneness among the Assamese people.
The Ahom kings were great builders. They set apart a good portion of revenue of the State for the construction of the temples and tanks. Most of these buildings that stand to this day, though in a ruined state, speak greatly of the artistic taste of the Ahom monarchs.
