It is generally believed that battle scars render a handsome face obnoxious; however one look at Imphal, the capital city of Manipur, would force a change of opinion. This charming city has acted as the backdrop for the famous and bloody battle of Imphal (along with Battle of Kohima) which turned the course of World War II when the Japanese lost the battle in Asia for the first time. Prior to this claim to fame, Imphal was the seat of the Emperor of Manipur and has been the capital of Manipur State since 1826.

This quaint little beautiful city, finds its abode in the basin of Manipur River. The city is encircled by hills that protect it from almost every direction. However, being the center of attraction and major war operations during the British rule Imphal has always been treated with importance by the British. Various monuments and spots created by the erstwhile rulers still attract nature lovers and students of History in hordes to Imphal.

The city of Imphal offers an interesting mix of natural resources and man made marvels to the tourists. These include Monuments, Museums, Archeological and religious sites, Animal Parks, markets and heritage sights. The State of Manipur stands out amongst the seven sisters as one of the cleanest and most peaceful states. The people of Manipur are extremely cooperative and courteous. Generally they are categorized into two focals viz. the people living on the plains (Meities) and those from the hills.
