Direction

Moirang is about 45 kms. from Imphal and is a very sacred place for the Manipuri people. It holds an ancient temple of the pre-Hindu deity, Lord Thangjing. The flag of the Indian National Army was first hoisted here on April 14, 1944. There is also an Indian National Army Museum depicting their struggle for India’s independence. The museum is open from 8 A.M. to 6 P.M. Traditional “Moirang Lai Haraoba” is celebrated in the month of May every year from the olden days. During the festival, both men and women in hundreds dance and sing in honour of Thangjing. Everyone in gorgeous traditional costumes, sing and dance in honour of the Lord here. It was from the village of Moirang, too, that the graceful Khamba-Thoibi dance originated traditionally celebrated in May. Moirang offers I.N.A. memorial with the bronze statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. There is an INA Museum exhibiting letters, photographs, badges of ranks and other articles associated with this movement.
