In 1228 Ahom dynasty was founded by Chaolung Sukaphaa, a Tai prince of south China’s Mong Mao provision.
He came here with his 9000 companions via Patkai hills and entered the valley of Brahmaputra.
In 1253 Sukaphaa established Ahom kingdom in Charaideo and started slowly to expand their colony around the whole Brahmaputra valley.
According to Assam history, Ahom was so clever who even beat down the most powerful Mughal at that time [The Battle of Saraighat in 1671].

The most powerful rulers with their dominance in all over India were the Mughal’s.
Established ruling after a historic battle of Panipath against the Lodi’s in 1526, Babar founded the Mughal dynasty in India.

Though their ruling duration was not as long as Ahom’s, but their dominance in all over India was incomparable.

I want to tell you that Nara Narayana and Bir Chilarai belonged to this dynastical power.
These both persons were brothers.
Here Nara Narayana was the king of Kamatapur kingdom and Bir Chilarai was the general of it.
Their stories are still very famous in Assam history.

kingdom was completely destroyed.
