text: Structurally, the Konyak morungs were of two types: those of open front and long protruding gabled roof, and those of closed front, whose roof hung low over a front porch. Both types occurred in Thenkoh as well as in Thendu villages, and there were villages which contained men's houses of both types. In Wanchu villages I saw only morungs of the second type.
