Panthoibi Khongul (Meitei: ꯄꯥꯟꯊꯣꯢꯕꯤ ꯈꯣꯡꯒꯨꯜ)(literally, "in quest of Panthoibi"[1] or "Panthoibi's footprint"[2]), also spelt as Panthoipi Khongkul, is an ancient Meitei literary work (puya), narrating about the quest of goddess Panthoibi. The text highlights the love saga of Panthoibi and her ultimate lover Nongpok Ningthou,[3][4] after leaving her husband's house. Many scholars believe the work to be written during the 12th century AD.[5][6][7][8]

The text also talks about how the festival Lai Haraoba was begun after the union of the two lovers.[9]
