Ahom Kings and their Hindu Names

5/5 - (3 votes)

Ahom Kings and their Hindu Names/Aternate Names: The Ahom Kings, often, would assume an Ahom name decided by the Ahom priests. The name generally ended in pha (meaning ‘Lord’ in Tai), e.g. Sukapha. The later Ahom kings were seen adopting an alternative name; mostly an Hindu name that ended in Singha (meaning ‘Lion’ in Assamese) e.g., Sutamla assumed the name Jayadhwaj Singha.

This extensive list contains all the Ahom Kings along with their alternate names (Hindu names) along with other nicknames that were given to them on various occasions e.g., Sulikpha was given the nickname Lora Roja because he was very young when he was made a King.
