Shukladhwaj, or more popularly Chilarai, was the younger brother of Nara Narayana, the king of the Kamata kingdom in the 16th century. He was Nara Narayana's commander-in-chief, and he got his name Chilarai because his movement as a general was as fast as a chila (kite). Chilarai is known to have descended from the powerful founder of the Koch dynasty of Kamatapur, Viswa Simha. His mother, Padmavati, was from the country called Gaur.

Chilarai was instrumental in giving Srimanta Sankardeva protection and shelter, as well as marrying his niece. His son and grandson were responsible for breaking away of Koch Hajo from the parent kingdom.
