The name derived from the age old tradition of the kings"when taking an oath a person has to lick the tip of the sword smeared or dip in salt". the name Mawmluh literally translated would be Salty-stone...Maw - Stone and Mluh - stone.Mawmluh Villgae was once a part of the Nongkhlaw Kingdom and it used to be the resting place of the Prince.The war known as "ka thma Mawkhyrdop" broke between the king and the general viceroy and some people fled to the nearby village now known as Laitkynsew Village.Mawmluh used to be the main trading area where goods from the erstwhile East Bengal (Bangladesh) were brought here through the Mule trails and supplied to the whole northeast frontier of the East India company.The pit roasting of fish is one of the main occupations of the people here. Fish brought all away from the ocean and big rivers were preserved,sold and supplied from here.it is the unique technique of the locals to preserve the fish by drying the water where the fish are placed upside down in a wood/bamboo skewer and then placed next to the burning fire.Another occupation was the Ironmongery.The iron found in this area was considered to be one of the best during that time. But gradually it was blended / adulterated with the lesser grade iron from the plain by some merchants with the permission of the viceroy to the king. This finally brought an end to the Ironmongers and also was one of the main reasons of the "Thma Mawkhyrdop".
