Language of Kokborok
 Kokborok has existed in its various forms since
at least the 1st century AD, when the historical
record of Tripura Kings began to be written
down. The script of Kokborok was called
"Koloma". The Chronicle of the Tripuri Kings
were written in a book called the Rajratnakar,
this book was originally written down in
Kokborok using the Koloma script by
Durlobendra Chontai.

 Later, two Brahmins, Sukreswar and Vaneswar
translated it into Sanskrit and then again
translated the chronicle into Bengali in the 14th
century. The chronicle of Twipra in Kokborok
and Rajratnakar are no longer available.
Kokborok was relegated to a common people's
dialect during the rule of the Tripuri Kings in
the Kingdom of Tripura, in contrast to Bengali
language, from the period of the 14th century
till the 20th century.
