"Panthoibi" (Meitei: ꯄꯥꯟꯊꯣꯢꯕꯤ), also spelt as "Panthoipi" (Old Manipuri: ꯄꯥꯟꯊꯣꯢꯄꯤ), is a primordial goddess in Meitei mythology and religion.[2] She is associated with agricultural fertility, abundance, war and love in Meitei mythology.[3][4][5] Legend says she was taught the art of pottery by goddess Leimarel Sidabi before she had disappeared forever.[6] She is the consort of Nongpok Ningthou.[7] Panthoibi Iratpa, a religious festival dedicated to her, is celebrated every year.[8][9][10]
