Akashi Phukan.

Abstract
The period of Purandar Singha and his contemporary Assam is an important epoch in the history of Assam. Because this period marked not only the end of a powerful Ahom monarchy that had ruled in the valley of the Brahmaputra for over a six hundred years but ushered in a new regime of foreign domination having radical changes the effects of which can be felt even today. In spite of several works on medieval and British period of Assam, some personalities and some issues have failed to receive adequate justice in the hands of historians. Though there are already several historical works on Ahom or pre-British Assam, number of similar works even articles in learned journals on Purandar Singha and his contemporary period is partially covered by many, there is lack of research work on this period. This paper focuses on causes and circumstances that led to the final exit of last of Ahom king from the stage of history. It also discusses the position of Raja Purandar Singha how he has responded to the challenges of that time.

Key words: Ahom Monarchy, Purandar Singha, Foreign Domination, New Era
