Manipur                                                                    Photo Gallery       

Manipur is situated in the northeastern region of the country. As one might say without hesitation, the land is a paradise come true on earth. Literally meaning “ the jeweled land”, Manipur is richly endowed with natural beauty and splendour. Home to Sangai, a rare species of deer and Siroy Lily, the only terrestrial lily grown on the hill tops of Siroi hill, St. Clair Grimwood described it as " A Pretty Place more beautiful than many show places of the world." Late Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru paid a fitting tribute by describing it as "Jewel of India".

Manipur is bounded by Nagaland in the north, Mizoram in the south, Upper Myanmar in the east and Cachar district of Assam in the west.

Manipur is comprised of nine districts: Bishnupur, Chandel, Churachandpur, Imphal East, Imphal West, Senapati, Tamenglong, Thoubal and Ukhrul
