Commonly referred to as Sekta Kei, the Sekta Archaeological Living Museum is one of Imphal's prime tourist attractions and has been inviting archeologists, historians and tourists from all corners of the world. A visit to the museum provides a rare opportunity to explore ancient antiques depicting the history of the tribes in Manipur during the 14th and 15th centuries. The various sections of the museum introduce visitors to the traditions and rituals followed by the tribals during the ancient times. The museum also houses a unique collection of ornaments, exquisite pottery, semi-precious stones and equipment made of metal. Visitors can also come across rare artefacts belonging to the ex-Meitei and Naga rulers. The museum lies on an archaeological site that was excavated by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) and archaeologists from Manipur. The excavations revealed six marked burial sites. One burial mound has still been protected by the State Archaeology Department. Covering an area of around 0.35 acre, the Sekta Mound makes for an interesting visit. The museum is located at a distance of 16 km from Imphal.
