Teju


Teju, Arunachal ParadeshTezu is another beautiful tourist spot in Arunachal Pradesh and is the headquarters of the Lohit district. Tezu is famous for the Parasuram Kund, which is a consecrated place for the Hindus, where pilgrims from all over the country come for a holy dip."


Pilgrims from all over the country come here for holy dip in the kund to wash away their sins. There is a large Parasuram Kund. People flock in during winter particularly in January. A fair is held during Mokar-lake called Glow Lake.


The ancient inhabitant of this beautiful land of valley and rivers are the Mishmi tribes. This tribe still has a King and Queens residing in the district headquarters of Tezu. The Mishmi tribes have a rich tradition and customs dating back to the times of Mahabharata. It is said that Rukmini of Mahabharata was a Mishmi Damsel.


The Idus are primarily concentrated in the Upper Dibang Valley, district and parts of the northern part of Lohit district of Arunachal Pradesh in India. Taraon, also called Digaru Mishmis, are distributed in the hill and the foothills between the Digaru and the Lohit rivers.Kamans are also known as the Miju Mishmis, they live between the Lohit and the Kambang rivers in the foothills and in the Mishmi Hills on both sides of the Lohit river right up to the frontiers to Rima.


The Idu Mishmis were the first to come from Burma. They were followed by the ancestors of the Digaru Mishmis a little over 500 years ago. The Mijus were the last to migrate from the direction of Hakamti-Long on the Kachin country.


Languages spoken are Digaru Mishmi, Miju Mishmi, Khamti, Hindi, Assamese and English.


The entire population of the state can be divided into three cultural groups on the basis of their socio-politico-religious affinities. It has been found that the tribes of Arunachal were integrated into groups independent of each other, living their separate lives. The common denominators were that the pattern of lifestyle of each were the same and that they followed the same occupation; the societies were casteless; the societies were governed by chiefs and the adults grouped according to their age for distinct social functions and the young organized around dormitory institutions to act as the implementing instruments of the decisions and instructions of the older generation.


All the individual tribes have a rich cultural heritage and the government is making all out efforts in helping conserve their traditional heritage. The society of Arunachal is patriarchal and primogeniture and the fundamental laws of inheritance with variations are not uncommon. They follow endogamy and strictly observe the rule of clan exogamy. Polygamy is socially sanctioned and practiced by most of them. The people are highly democratic, and each tribe has its own organized institutions that maintain law and order, decide disputes and take up all activities for the welfare of the tribes and the villages.
