Nongda Lairen Pakhangba (Meitei: ꯅꯣꯡꯗꯥ ꯂꯥꯢꯔꯦꯟ ꯄꯥꯈꯪꯕ), originally spelt as Nongta Lailen Pakhangpa (Meitei: ꯅꯣꯡꯇꯥ ꯂꯥꯢꯂꯦꯟ ꯄꯥꯈꯪꯄ), is the first ruler of the Ningthouja dynasty to sit on the throne of the Kangla of Ancient Manipur (Antique Kangleipak).[1][2] He ascended the throne of the kingdom in 33 AD and ruled till 154 AD.[3][4]

His identity was always mingled with that of the snake God Pakhangba.[5][6] So, some ancient texts also described him like a divine king.[7] The Khaba Nganba dynasty held the power of the kingdom before Nongda Lairen Pakhangba had overcame them through fierce battle.[8] The Pakhangba Nongkaron recorded the fact that he had a combat with Poireiton for claiming the throne of Kangla, the ancient capital city of the kingdom.[9]
