Singarigharutha Ceremony
Singarigharutha was the traditional Tai-Ahom ceremony of coronation of the Ahom kings of Assam. During the period of Ahom supremacy in Assam, the Singarigharutha ceremony had important constitutional significance. It was believed that even though an Ahom prince became king, he could not attain the status of full-fledged monarch until his Singarigharutha ceremony was completely performed.[1] Therefore, each Ahom ruler after their accession to the throne tried to organize the ceremony as soon as possible. But it was not as easy since the ceremony was very expensive and there were records when some of the Ahom kings had to postpone it owing to emergency situations or due to financial crisis of the state.Contents1 Origin 2 Procedures 3 Historical significance of the ceremony 4 Conclusion 5 See also 6 Notes 7 ReferencesOrigin[edit] The Singarigharutha ceremony was first observed by the Ahom King Sudangphaa, popularly known as Bamuni Konwar
