ROING- It was in the year 1983 when Late Khumso Mithi Naba established a Shiv Mandir in Roing, dedicated to the Hindu community of the area.

With a vision to provide a stronger foundation to the temple, the newly consecrated Bazar Shiv Mandir was inaugurated today by the state’s Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein, in the august presence of former CM Mukut Mithi, MLAs Mutchu Mithi and Zingnu Namchoom, and others.
