Renowned worldwide for its historical Langthabal Palace, Langthabal lies alongside the Indo-Myanmar Road and has several remnants of the bygone eras of Manipur’s history. Its partly-in-ruins palace stands on a small hillock and provides some stunning views of the Manipur University below. This ancient red-brick structure is enshrouded by thick forests of green pine as well as towering jack-fruit trees and is an important sightseeing location for all tourists in the region.
Commissioned by Maharaja Gambhir Singh, way back in the year 1827, this palace boasts of high historical significance and is also visited for its many temples and popular ceremonial sites. Apart from the bounties of the palace and the other historic ruins located nearby, this sightseeing spot is also visited for its great opportunities of photography and bird watching.
