History The north-eastern state of Manipur is known for scenic surroundings and vibrant culture. As per the Peberton report, the geographical boundaries of Manipur were not static, and they used to fluctuate with the kings, ruling the region. King Pamheiba was the most prominent ruler in this region. He invaded Burma many times and in return Burmese also invaded this land in 1890 that led to around seven years of devastation. The erstwhile king Gambhir Singh had to take shelter in Assam. Afterwards, the British started taking the charge of administration. This created a rage in locals, and as a result, the battle of Khongjom was fought. Another historic event in the state occurred on April 14, 1944 when the national flag was hoisted here. Later, Manipur gained the status of a sovereign independent state in the year 1947, and achieved its statehood in 1972.
