India is the seventh-largest country by surface area and home to 1.25 billion people, making it the second most populated country 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 religious subgroups 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. Most of the people are of the Meitei ethnic group but Manipur is also home to 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.
