General Information

The erstwhile princely state of manipur is jewel of a land with its bounteours vistas of ustrammelled beauty and  ancent traditions. Set in a oval valley amongst smoky blue hills, it is the home of the Meitei who dominat the populace which is an admixture of naga and Kuki Chain Mizo groups amongst other colourful commnities.

The serenity of these prestine and isolated environs has permeated the lifestyle of these people with a lavish  hand alowing them to live for centuries in harmony.

The Manipur's inspiration arise from the wondrous balance of the floa and fauna that abound in its environs. Almost 70 percent of ther is under forest cover. The stunning cobination of wet forests temperate forest sand pine forests sustain a host of rare and endemic plant and animal life.  Some of the world's rarest orchids spring from the fertile soil.

Denizens of the forest include the rare hoolock gibbon the snow leopard and slow loris amongst a glaxy of othere rate fauna. Indigenous to Manipur's rich natural heritage is the sangal - the dancing deer, ther rarest of creatures that is facing extinction.
 

HISTORY
Manipur has a varied and proud history from the earliest times. It came under the British rule after the First Anglo  Manipuri war of 1891. In this war, many great heroes of Manipur laid down their lives. Major General Paona Brajabashi died fighting the British Army in the battle of Khongjom. The British then captured Imphal and had General Thangal and Yuvraj(Prince) Tekendrajit hanged.

After India became independent on August 15, 1947; the Manipur Constitution Act, 1947 established a democratic form of Government with the Maharaja as the Executive Head and a legislature constituted by election on adult franchise. This legislative assembly functioned till it was dissolved on the integration of the state with the Dominion of India in October, 1949. Manipur achieved full statehood on January 21, 1972.
 

FLORA AND FAUNA:
The wet forests, the temperate forest and the pine forests occur between 900-2700 metres above sea level and they together sustain a host of rare and endemic plant and animal life. There are around 500 varieties of orchids which grow in Manipur of which 472 have so far been identified. Hoolock gibbon, Slow loris, Clouded leopard, Mrs. Hume's Barebacked pheasant, Blyth's Tragopan, Hornbills etc. form only a part of the natural heritage of Manipur. However, the most unique is the "Sangai", the dancing deer. The floating mass of vegetation on the Loktak Lake sustains small herds of this endemic deer which is the most threatened species in the world.
