Tourist Attractions in Tuensang

It is located between Tuensang and Hakchung village. According to the Chang legend, it is said that their ancestors lived in this place “ Changsang” during the creation of the universe. It says that human existence on earth started when man emerged from a big hole in the earth.

It was believed, once a great big hole was opened in the surface of the earth, and from there all the living creatures came out. But the door of the hole was opened only for a limited period, after which it was closed for eternity. Thus, each and every moving creature both male and female had walked out of the hole. It was a time when man and animals lived together and had a common medium of communication and culture. They lived on the beautiful hills; mountains, valleys and rivers covered the tender plants and pastures. They thought that the place they lived was the whole world, and that the earth was flat. Fresh water flowed from their sources and all living creatures enjoyed drinking water from it. As such both animals and birds moved around it. There was no class distinction between the birds, animals and humans. They lived together, at common fruits and drank from the same river. They had good relationship among themselves and did not know what was good or evil. The living things had no proper limbs or wings in the beginning and were innocent. Such was the stage and state of affairs, for which this generation was known as ‘Moyangyangabu Muthen’ in Chang dialect, which means the senseless stage.

According to oral and traditional story, the Chang settled at this place ‘Changsang’ and it was the first named village for Changs. There at the center of the village they constructed a platform called ‘Mullang’. It was a platform of progress and success that became the public court and all the major issues, and cases were conducted there. And the decisions or judgment delivered from this platform became the final order.

There on the west of the village are situated two stones, known locally as Long Akang Threla; according to legend, these two living stones, who were friends, used to visit Longthüroh or Longterok. they were worshipped by the villagers and even neighbouring enemies went weak when they came across them while headhunting.
