Straddling both the banks of the Imphal river, the ancient Kangla Fort was once a grand structure that has been in existence for more than two millenniums now. Today, its charming ruins, on the western side of the river, bear vestiges of its former grandeur. Several shrines peppered across the fort are quite popular among tourists. Since Kangla served as the ancient capital of Manipur, several Meetei monarchs ruled it from the Kangla Fort.

Another attraction is the Kangla Museum, which is divided into two galleries. While the first one displays portraits of Manipur rulers, a model of the Kangla Fort and maps of the state, the second gallery showcases archaeological excavations discovered from Kangla. The fort remains open to visitors from 7 am to 5 pm.
