Introduction / History

The Ahom live in India and are descendants of Tai people who came to live in the Brahmaputra Valley in the early thirteenth century. They were in power for about six hundred years. Most live in Assam and speak Assamese. Some live in the Lohit District of Arunachal Pradesh.

The custom regarding the Ahom with their dead is to not burn them but keep them in a box. They have inter-married, some with the Tibeto Burmans who gave them the name of Ahom.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Most of the Ahom are Hindus but some are Buddhists. There are a few who follow Christianity. Some follow their old Furalung religion. There are three priestly clans among them. They worship ancestors who they believe will keep them safe. They believe that when dead, a person goes to heaven and becomes a god and they then worship them.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Ahom in India.
