"Ka Tala Mylliem" or the Mylliem Lock is an indigenous lock made from scrap metal. The lock with its particular look and coil-design key is testament to the skill and knowledge of Khasi ironsmiths. The lock which has its origins in the village of Laitlyngkot now adorns people's houses as a showpiece or a souvenir. This is another piece of the daily life of Khasis in the past which occupies a special position in our history. 🔏🗝️⛏️⚒️
