text: Konyak. Longkhai - the Ang morung.
text: Has 'Ang' post outside it. When the morung was last repaired Mauwang carved an 'Ang' post and superimposed on it a snake catching a frog (12 years ago). The carvings cannot compare with the Wakching ones which in rhythm and general intensity are far and away the best I have seen.
