text: (71) The Kongan people still remember the name of the Ahom rajah who married the daughter of an Ang of Wanching. It was Godhator. His Naga wife died in Naginimara which gave the place its name. Her name is supposed to have been Watlong, however that is also the name of the chieftain's daughter from Tanhai who also married an Ahom king and the question is whether this is possibly only another version of the same event.
