Manipur was once a sovereign state and now it is the North-Eastern Zonal state of India. Manipur had different names in the early state. Names like Kyangleipak, Kyangkleipang, Kyanglei, Meitrabak, and Mekhali. The people of Manipur were formerly known as Meitei. Some missionaries arrived here from Sylhet during the reign of Maharaj Garibniwaz (1709-1748). There was a myth that these missionaries named this land “Manipur”. The people got the name “Manipuris”. Later, it was ensured that Manipur of Mahabharata and Manipur of Sylhet were not the same place. The Manipuris migrated to the area of Bangladesh. They settled here at different times due to conflicts, socio-political reasons, and wars.
