Khongjom is the place where the last warriors of the Manipur Empire breathed their last, fighting a gallant battle to repel the strong British Army columns after the British Govt. had declared war against Manipur on 31st of March 1891. British won the Battle and beheaded General Paona on 23rd April.

Khongjom Day is observed, as a State Holiday, every year on this day in memories of Paona and other martyrs who died in Khongjom for the defense of their Motherland. Khongjom lies 36 km from Imphal and is close to the Indo-Burma Road. This historic place remembers those Manipuri warriors through a war memorial constructed at the pinnacle of the quaint hillock.
