on the Indo-Burma Road, 36 km. from Imphal, this is a place of greatest
historic importance where Major General Paona Brajabashi, proved
his valour against the superior force of the invading British Army
in 1891. Khongjom day is celebrated as a State Holiday on every
year on April 23. A war memorial on the top of the hillock at the
foot of which Major Brajabashi laid down his life, adds charm to
this historic site.
