The Manipur New Year Cheiroba

Cheiraoba festival in Manipur marks the new year in the month of April with much pomp and gaiety. The countdown begins after the various deities are worshipped on the occasion. Every household gets a fresh look before the commencement of the festival. The best place to visit during this celebration is Imphal which wears a festive look.
 
The most striking ritual is the hill climbing which pulls no less crowd in the hilly hamlets where the people climb the hilltops believing that they would be able to rise to greater heights in future. 
 

Yaoshang (Dol Jatra Festival)

The full moon day of Phalgun (March) brings new charm and enthusiasm to Manipur. The people in the princely state find a nice occasion to celebrate Yaoshang, a solemn festival that attracts no less tourists in the north eastern state. The five day long festival is also known as the festival of colours which marks the advent of spring season. The people, mostly, belonging to Hinduism sprinkle natural powder to celebrate the festival dedicated to the Lord Krishna.
