This institution was built in the 1900s and was named after a famous medieval time poet and play writer called Srimanta Sankardev. Open-air theatres showcasing the performance of the Assamese culture & their traditions, emporiums filled with traditional & cultural items, temples dedicated to various deities are located in the vicinity of the Kalakshetra. The Srimanta Sankardev Kalakshetra is being maintained by the Cultural Department of Assam Government and is divided into various levels and complex focusing on each tribe and community. The replication of the villages and the society can also be seen in the institute. Each level focuses on each tribe present in the state from when the civilization started.
