India has only about one-third the land area of the USA, but it is home to more than 1.25 billion people, second only to China, making it one of the most densely populated major countries in the world. Historically known for its trade routes, vast empires and rich culture dating back thousands of years; India is as rich in culture as it is in beauty. Temples in India can be seen far and wide due to Hinduism, Buddhism and other religions originating there. The northeastern state of Manipur has been called the “Jewel of India” because of its surrounding hills, oval-shaped valley and boundless beauty. Its location and geography make this part of India particularly unique. Rugged hills, narrow valleys and fertile farmlands, Manipur is largely an agrarian society. The Meitei ethnic group comprises 60% of the state’s population, but Manipur is also home to scores of indigenous tribal groups with distinct cultures and dialects that separate them from the rest of India. The folklore, natural beauty, dances and indigenous games are only part of what makes Manipur so special.
