City: Chandel State: Manipur Country: India
The Chandel District (formerly known as Tengnoupal District) came into existence on May 13, 1974. The district is inhabited by several communities. It is sparsely inhabited by about 20 different tribes. They are scattered all over the district. Prominent tribes in the district are Anal, Lamkang, Kuki, Moyon, Monsang, Chothe, Thadou, Paite, Maring and Zou etc. There are also other communities like Meiteis, and Muslims (Meitei Pangal) in small numbers as compared to the tribes. Non-Manipuris like Nepalis, Tamils, Bengalis, Punjabis and Biharis are also settled in this district. The Moreh town, the international trade centre of the state, lies on the southernmost part of the district. When the Trans-Asian Super Highway comes into existence, Chandel district will be one of the gateways to the Asian countries.
