  • The War Cemetery at Kabo Leikai, Imphal is maintained by the Common Wealth War Graves Commission. There are 1600 graves, each plaque is engraved with name,age, date of decease, name of the battalion and rank of the soldier with a few sweet and lovely words. Some plaque are found engraved with "A Soldier Of 1939 -1945 War" that is an "unknown soldier". It seems to me that all the soldiers were peace loving,God fearing and dutiful citizens. It is true that every plaque on the graves telling the sad stories of world war 2 particularly the fierce battle of Imphal. It was Sunday ,the 10th May,1942, people of Imphal heard a loud sound of Siren wailed from the base camp of 4th Assam Rifles at Kangla, after a few minutes, people saw flights of Japanese bombers in the sky , innocent children were clapping happily to see the flying objects ,on the next moment loud sounds of bombardments were heard at many places in Imphal. Hundreds of allied soldiers and civilians were killed, several houses and Government installations were burnt down to ashes. Thousands of people left home in search of safe places, after that subsequent war days began in Manipur. Fighting between Allied and Japanese force started at several places of Imphal and other places , battle of Imphal was the fierce battle in the South East Asian theatre of World War2. Thousands of innocent peoples died of injury, hunger and epidemic, about 60 thousand Allied and Japanese soldiers died in that battles, People of Manipur had witnessed the most dreaded and hateful face of war 75 years ago. Inscription carved on a plaque reads " peacefully sleeping ,free from pain ,in Good's own time,we shall meet again".
  • Very informative place about WW-2 , quite and well maintained War memorial with hundreds of grave stones with names on it. If you are in Imphal please don't miss this place, spending few hours in this war memorial is definitely not a waste of time. Not very far from city centre itself. Don't forget to click few snaps too while you are there.
  • Worth visiting this place.
