Khongjom is on the Indo-Burma road. The small town is a place of great historic importance. Here Major General Paona Brajabashi, one of the great warriors of Manipur, proved his valour against the invading British Army in 1891. He gave his life for his home country at the foot of the hill. A war memorial on the top of this hill renders the place even mor impressive. For accommodation, contact the Khongjom Tourist Home, 220802.
