Mushroom

The Dimasa Kachari Ruins are a set of ruins located in Dimapur, Nagaland. It is a series of mushroom domed pillars which date back to the 10th century. These pillars appeared during the Dimasa Kachari civilization and were created by the Dimasa Kachari Kingdom.

The kingdom ruled this area before the Ahom, descendants of the ethnic Tai people, invaded the territory during the 13th Century AD. The origin and purpose of the Ahoms are largely mysterious.

The pillars are not well maintained and are crumbling down due to the wear and tear of nature. Although few pillars can still be seen standing in their former glory. A game similar to chess is believed to have been played here with these mushroom domes.

Alas, even though it is a protected monument, it has been neglected by the government and the people.
