Manipur Tourist Places and Travel Attractions


Manipur literally meaning the ‘Land of Gems’, has been variously described as the ‘Jewel of India’, ‘A Little Paradise’, ‘A Flower of lofty Heights’ and as the ‘Kashmir of Eastern India’. The ridges and valleys of the mountain chain of north-east India are well pronounced in Manipur, providing tourists with rich natural scenery and salubrious climate. A rich cultural harmony has resulted in the classical Manipuri dance and the Manipuri martial arts, all of which are part of the festivals of Manipur and are reflected in the state’s crafts.
