text: Near Tanhai we stopped to look at the stone believed to have been the seat of the Ahom King who had sought refuge in the Naga Hills. The stone had been carried to the road in order that the Governor Daulatram might see it, - rather a sacrilege, in my opinion, as in Tanhai it had lain at a place connected with the exiled king.
text: The village of Tanhai lies just above the road but there are a few huts and a school close to the road.
