History of Itanagar


Itanagar, the capital of the Arunachal Pradesh is a well-known vacation spot in Arunachal Pradesh. Itanagar is the gorgeous town located at the Papum Pare District. It is situated at the foothills of the Himalayas. The most primitive illustration of the place dates back to the antique epics such as the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. During historic ages, several tribes used to inhabit this region such as Adis, Nyishis, Galos, Miri's and Apatanis which ruled Itanagar. Even nowadays they are in abundance in several areas of Itanagar and the government provides various funds to those tribes.


During the period of the 16th century, the Ahom dynasty ruled Itanagar. The tribes captured the nearby places to Itanagar. The Ita Fort is one of the best developments by the Ahom dynasty. The Monpa chiefs ruled the north western part of the state. The Monpa tribal chief is believed to be the element of the Monyul Empire. The Monyul Dynasty burgeoned during 500 B.C. When these tourist spots were emerging too famous, British entered Itanagar and they ruled Itanagar in a furious way and they tortured the local people.
