Mawlynnong is a village in the East Khasi Hills district of the Meghalaya state of India and known for its cleanliness and natural beauty. Did you know that it was awarded the prestigious tag of “Cleanest Village in Asia” in 2003 by Discover India Magazine? What makes it even more interesting is that it is also a matrilineal society, unlike most societies in the world!
