History of Aizawl

It is believed the Mizo people came from China and settled here about 300 years ago. Mizoram, in the 18th century, had an autocratic political system, ruled by hereditary chieftains. In the 1890s, the British annexed the Lushai Hills (as the hills of Mizoram are commonly known as) district to Assam.

During the British rule, Christian missionaries were encouraged to come to Mizoram to proselytise and preach. They did and as a consequence, almost 95% of the Mizo population is Christian. The indigenous Buddhist and animist tribes such as the Chakmas and Reangs have been persecuted and even driven out of the state.
