  • Ebudhou Thangjing Temple- Every year, traditional 'Moirang Lai Haraoba' is celebrated in May. During the festival, people from all over the state gather to seek the blessing of 'Ebudhou Thangjing'. This festival continues for almost a month. During the festival, on every Sunday, a mega dance and singing program is offered to the deity.
  • The Keibul Lamjao National Park is in the Bishnupur district of the state of Manipur in India. It is 40 km2 (15.4 sq mi) in area, the only floating park in the world, located in North East India, and an integral part of Loktak Lake. The national park is characterized by many floating decomposed plant materials locally called phumdis. To preserve the natural refuge of the endangered Manipur Eld's Deer or Brow-antlered Deer (Cervus eldi eldi), or Sangai also called the Dancing Deer, listed as an endangered specie by IUCN, the park which was initially declared as a Sanctuary in 1966, was subsequently declared as National Park in 1977 through a gazette notification.
  • Sendra is a small island in the center of North-East India's largest fresh water lake. The Lake is around 48 km south of Imphal. Sendra is an ideal picnic spot. One may view small islands of floating weed from the tourist bungalow located at the top of a hillock.
