Lamka, originally & locally known as Lamka, town is the district headquarters of Lamka district in Manipur. "Due to its commercial origins,Lamka is the most multi-ethnic and cosmopolitan hill town in Manipur. During WW II, Lamka did not escape Japanese bombing; but it enjoyed about five decades of quiet and peaceful progress in the post-War period. Especially during the 1970s and '80s,Lamka was an "island of peace" which exerted a magnetic pull for many moneyed investors seeking good profit.
The Sangai festival is an annual cultural festival organized by Manipur Tourism Department, and is generally held from November 21 to 30 each year.
