Why travel Imphal?

The city of Imphal is the capital of the Indian state of Manipur. The ruins of the Palace of Kangla, the royal seat of the erstwhile Kingdom of Manipur, are in the city centre, surrounded by a moat. The beauty of Imphal is overshadowed by revolutionary battles fought in the city. Encompassed by lush green hills this quaint little city offers scintillating views that reverberates in the minds of travelers for a lifetime. Occupying a saucer-shaped valley, Manipur’s capital Imphal is surrounded by hills on which the state flower, the siroi lily, grows. It is your hub for exploring this state, which has forested stretches, the largest freshwater lake in the North-East and the rare brow antlered deer, the sangai.
