Khongjom War Memorial reminds tourists of the war held between the inhabitants of Manipur and the British army—way back in 1891. The beautiful war memorial was built at the very site of this war and is an important sightseeing destination for tourists in Manipur. It lies at a distance of 36 km from Imphal. Symbolizing patriotism and courage, the exquisite Khongjom War Memorial is dedicated to Paona Brajabasi (a Manipur Warrior) and other soldiers who laid down their lives fighting against the might of the British Army.
Standing stoic on top of Khongjom Hill, this war memorial attracts tourists from far and wide—especially on April 23rd, when Khongjom Day is celebrated with a lot of zest in the region and honors the sacrifice of these brave warriors. You will be welcomed to the memorial by a grand 30-feet tall entrance, verdant valleys, enchanting hills, and yes the bounties of an azure blue sky. You can also savor the natural delights and scenic terrains of Imphal from this location. A mesmerizing location indeed!
