Imoinu Festival

Carrying the legacy of Indian culture forward, traditional worship of Imoinu, believed to be the deity of wealth among the Meetei ethnic, is widely performed every year across the state with much fanfare.

The yearly festival falls on Wakchingi Tarainithoini Panba of Meitei lunar calendar.

The festival is marked by lighting candles and putting colourful lights in and around households, in front of establishments and along the streets.

Offerings are made to Goddess Emoinu including vegetables, fruits, and sweets.

All the Meitei households in the state are kept neat and clean during the festival.
