- Treaty of Asurar Ali
The Treaty of Asurar Ali was signed in early February of
1639between the Mughal commander Allah Yar Khanand the Ahomcommander Momai Tamuli Borbarua. The treaty came at the end of a period of Mughal efforts to drive into the Ahom kingdomthat began in 1615, and followed a decisive Ahom victory over the Mughals at Duimunisila. According to the treaty, the boundary between the Mughals and Ahoms was fixed on the Barnadi Riverin the northern bank ("utarkul") of the Brahmaputra Riverand the Asurar Ali ("Ali" is causeway in Assamese) in the southern bank ("dakhinkul"). The Ahom king recognized the supremacy of the Mughals in Kamrup, and the Mughal "fauzdar" agreed not to interfere in the Ahom kingdom. Trade and commerce between the two regions was permitted with the Ahom kingdom represented by Kanu Sharmaand Sanatan, and the Mughal represented by Sheikh Meda.
