Mayong Assam history

Black magician

Mayong is an ancient kingdom and no one knows much about this place's history. But the stories of this place has been a part of the local folklore for many years. According to researchers human sacrifices were carried out in connection with the worship of Shakti till the early modern period. Excavators had recently dug up swords and other sharp weapons that resembled tools used for human sacrifice in other parts of the country. The swords resemble ones used for human sacrifice other parts of India, suggesting that human sacrifice may have occurred in the Ahom era in Mayong.
Since there has not been any recorded history of Mayong till the Genealogy maintain by the Mayong's king family named "Goide". So, it is difficult to trace the past history before the 1st King "Xunyta Singha" ascended in the throne of greater Mayong territory. In ancient time, Assam was known as Pragjyotish which literally means the seat for the eastern astrology. From that time Mayong was popular for the Black Magic. Arimatta, a powerful king ruled in lower Assam and his son Jangal Balahu shifted his capital to Raha which is now in Nagaon District. This Kachari King Jangal Balahu was defeated by his father-in-law Gajaraj and killed with a bamboo spear near Kajalimukh which is in west of Mayong. In Ahom dynasty, to defeat the Mugal, Swargodeu Pratap Singha established 3 Chaki (Camps) in middle Assam. They are in Raha, Jagi and Kajoli. Recently a large amount of stone bullets use for cannon was discovered in Kajolimukh which proves that Kajalimukh was directly involved in the fight of Ahom and Mugal.
