Cholapathar Buddha Vihar

Cholapathar Shyam village is also one of the largest and oldest Tai-khamyang villages in North East India which came into existence in the very early part of 1869 AD. The name Cholapathar derives from two Tai words- Su (Tiger) and La (Valley) suggesting valley of the tigers. All of the inhabitants of the village are Buddhist and established the first Buddha Vihar (Kyong) in 1870, but the present Buddha Vihar was established in 1948. Festivals like Poi-Pee-Mou (New year celebration), Poi-changken, Mai-ko-chum-phai, Buddha Purnima etc are celebrated by the villagers as per the indigenous calendar of the community.
