Imphal: Manipur’s art and culture minister L Jayantakumar Singh has announced the setting up of a heritage complex at Behiang in Churachandpur district.
The wall of the heritage complex will be fenced as a first step to develop the site and demarcate the area. The site has already been acquired by the art and culture department and the fund for the same is to be earmarked soon.
The historical site, which is very close to the Myanmar border, has a protected footprint of the Maharaj Chandrakirti, the son of Raja Gambhir Singh, who was a ruler of Manipur from 1850 to 1886. The place is located at a distance of around 130 km from Imphal.
Apart from assuring a heritage complex, Jayantakumar also assured the setting up of an AYUSH centre in the district. He also urged the villagers to grow medicinal plants in the area and assured all necessary financial assistance to the farmers for the same.
