Indian National Army (INA) complex

Apart from being an ancient suzerainty, Moirang today, is all the more akin to India’s political history. It was on the 14th of April, 1944 that the flag of the Indian National Army (INA) was for the first time hoisted on the Indian Soil of Moirang, about 45 km away from Imphal, the capital of Manipur. The INA Museum at Moirang is a treasure of relics connected with Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's struggle against British imperialism to emancipate the Indian motherland.

Loktak Lake

Loktak Lake is the largest freshwater lake in Northeast India, and is famous for the phumdis (heterogeneous mass of vegetation, soil, and organic matter at various stages of decomposition) floating over it. Keibul Lamjao is the only floating national park in the world. It is located near Moirang in Manipur state, India.[1] The etymology of Loktak is Lok = "stream" and tak = "the end".[2] The largest of all the phumdis covers an area of 40 km2 (15 sq mi) and is situated on the southeastern shore of the lake.


Sendra, although a small hillock entangled by the lake-water on all sides is linked with the mainland through a pathway. A tourist-lodge is put up on the hill-top which is equipped with modern amenities including a Cafeteria. Sendra Island, about 50 odd kilometres from Imphal, offers a bird's eye view of the park and its occupants. One can explore the park by travelling around in tiny small boats and also climb up the watchtower, located on the hillock of Bebet Ching.
