In an effort to boost tourism sector in Manipur, the state government is planning to display the indigenous housing model of 34 tribes of Manipur at the Ethnic and Eco-tourism Park which is proposed to be constructed before the commencement of the upcoming Sangai Festival, 2022.
The site of the proposed park at Moirang Khunou in Bishnupur district was inspected on Wednesday by MLA of Thanga Tongbram Robindro and managing director of MPHC, C Doungel, along with officials of other concerned departments.
The ethnic park will cover an area of 13.59 acres, as per data available from the official.
Following the inspection, a brain-storming session was held at the residence of the MLA at Kairenphabi in Bishnupur district along with the officials to ensure smooth construction and complete it in time..
Speaking to the media, Robindro said that the proposed Ethnic and Eco-tourism Park will be a great tourist attraction and will help in boosting the economy of the local villagers.
Once the construction is completed, Thanga AC will move in towards a new level of tourism as it already has the one and only floating lake (Loktak Lake) in the entire globe, he added.
Such a move is a great initiative of the state government to make Manipur a tourism hotspot, he said, lauding Chief Minister N Biren-led government for its immense dedication towards making a progressive Manipur.
