Tap or Tapkil is a fireplace in Hmar language. It is a place where the womenfolk prepared food for the entire family. And, during winter it is one of the favourite spots in the house for both young and old people.
‘Tapsak’ is the fireplace in Hmar traditional huts and is the common feature in every house in Hmar Hills. Besides being a place for preparing meals for the entire family, Tapsak by virtue of its warmth is synonymous with romance. It is also courting place where many young men and women ignite their love stories. In short, when you are in Tapsak you can cook both love and food. Photo contributed by: Lts Tusing.
