October 3, 2017: Nightlife in Imphal has received a boost with the launch of a night plaza along the Kangla moat, providing opportunities for boating and holding music concerts along with 110 stalls, including those serving indigenous cuisine every weekend.

The aim of introducing the night plaza is to promote nightlife in the state to attract investors and tourists.
