Locally known as Maibam Lotpaching, Red Hill on Tiddim Road holds immense historical significance and is one of the most visited spots near Imphal. It was here that a fierce battle between the Japanese and the British armies was fought during the Second World War in 1944.

Today, the hill is known for its peace memorial. Constructed by Japanese war veteran Lt General Iwaichi Fujiwara in the honour of the Japanese soldiers who lost their lives, the Indian Peace Memorial, was inaugurated in 1994 on the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Imphal. Tourists can still see a rustic old cannon, which was used in the battle, stationed at the Red Hill. Tourists can also visit the INA War Museum at Moirang, which lies at a distance of 28 km from Red Hill. It was at this museum that Subhash Chandra Bose unfurled the national flag for the first time. Red Hill is located on the outskirts of Imphal.
