Imphal is the capital of the state of Manipur, India. The city's urban centre contains the ruins of Kangla Palace (also known as Kangla Fort), the seat of the ancient kingdom of Manipur, surrounded by a moat. Spread across portions of Imphal West and Imphal East counties, the area formerly occupied most of the city's land and population. Imphal is part of the Department of Housing and Cities' Smart Cities mission. Initially ruled by King Khaba, Imphal was later ruled by the rulers of Pakhangba. The clan of the Ningthouja tribe was then born. The Ningthouja tribe proliferated and dominated the region politically and in warfare. King Khagemba and his son Khunjaoba built Kangla Palace. The palace was later destroyed by the British during the Anglo-Manipur War. During the reign of Maharaja Bhagyachandra, there were several invasions by the Burmese. However, the kingdom survived with the help of Maharaj Gambhir Singh. The Imphal remained peaceful until 1891 when there were differences within the royal family. The British sent J.W. Quinton to help, but the situation only got worse, and Senapati Tikendrajit was hanged. Britain's autocratic behaviour angered the people. This culminated in the Anglo-Manipur War of 1891, which the British won. The Battle of Imphal occurred from March to July 1944 during World War II. The Japanese invaded Imphal to destroy the Allied forces and then invaded India, but they were defeated and forced to retreat. The attack made the British aware of the strategic military position of Imphal.
