Now has an excellent new museum
des. 2019
Red Hill, 17km south of Imphal, was the site of a decisive battle between Allied and Japanese forces in 1944, and a brand new museum, opened here in June 2019. Called the India Peace Museum, it has won design awards, and rightly so. It is beautifully laid out and very informative, with just the right amount of material about the battle and its effect on the area to keep you interested without becoming bored. A video based on contemporary film footage brings home the conditions under which the men on both sides fought. The museum also includes a replica of a local farmhouse and a display of the costumes of many of the Manipuri tribes, whilst there is a Japanese war memorial by the entrance. All in all, well worth a visit.

A humbling experience.

One of the forgotten place of the Indian Military history. But, an important land mark of the WW-II. Needs better upkeep and bit of publicity too.

Red Hill, also referred to as Point 2926 by allied forces and Maibam Lokpaching locally, is an immensely historic hill south of Imphal, on the Tiddim Road.

It was here in May 1944 that the Japanese were turned and retreated back into Burma to final defeat and surrender so, along with Kohima, is an enormously significant place in that war. Casualties, particularly on the Japanese side, were huge. The peak, Point 2926, was defended by a platoon of the 7/10th Baluch Regiment under the command of Subedar Ghulam Yasin against a concerted attack by the Japanese, and held by Yasin for 8 hours, carefully conserving ammunition before the fight was concluded. Yasin received an immediate MC.

At the foot of the hill, on the Western side, are two memorials; one constructed by the Japanese, the other by the Indians, both commemorating the losses by both sides.

nov. 2017 • Alene
Before you visit this place watch some ww2 jap movie or a documentary & when you visit this place just imagine yourself in those movie scene & ask the caretaker of that park for some brief stories & local tales of the villagers around also go behind the park there's a smaller version of park maintain by locals with destroyed jap cannon & machine guys placed for display(remember to tip the caretaker)...really fascinating if you love to hear ww2 history & local version stories!

PS... But if your just some wannabe on selfie mode don't bother,just click here & there & shove off so that you give some space for others to park.

Thanks & peace be with you all

Symbol of peace
mai 2018 • Par
India peace memorial has been built by the Japanese Government in collaboration with the Indian government in memory of those soldiers who died in the gruesome world War of 1944 which was fought on the hillock (called Red Hill) situated behind the memorial. Although the battle was fought between the Japanese and the British, there were plenty of Indian soldiers who supported the Japanese and lost their lives in this destructive battle.

The place is a beautiful green garden and is very peaceful. There are no fees to enter the memorial. It is located on the main road itself and is easily accessible. Do make a 10 minute halt at this symbol of peace while on the way to or while returning from Loktak lake.

南部から攻めた日本軍の中では、一番インパールに進出した丘です。数日の戦闘で部隊はほぼ全滅してしまいました。
合掌。

An important historical monument
mar. 2018 • Alene
This is the site of the major battle between the Japanese and the Commonwealth troops. There are a Japanese monument and by the roadside a simple elegant memorial down a flowered path.
Well worth visiting as you see the surrounds, see the hill and imagine the vicious fighting between the two sides.

Just a couple of monuments
mar. 2018 • Par
Red hill was a battle site during WWII but it is really just a spot on the road with two monuments - one India Peace garden and one from the Japanese. Might be worth a 2 minute stop.

In memory of the soldiers who laid down their life in the fierce battle of WW-II!
nov. 2017 • Venner
On our way to Loktak Lake, we paid our visit to this peace memorial. This is famous for the fierce battle fought between the Japa­nese and the British Armies on a small hillock now known as Red Hill. The name is obvious from the bloodshed it saw during the battle and from the huge loss of lives on both sides. It was constructed by the Japanese government and inaugurated in 1994, to mark the 50th anni­versary of the Battle of Imphal. The memorial is well kept and is a must visit for anyone visiting Imphal.

Red Hill-World War II Battle site
sep. 2017 • Venner
The area is locally known as Maibam Lotpa Ching where one of the fiercest battle of World War II was fought. Japanese and Allied forces were engaged in hand to hand fight in the battle of RedHill which went on for a week at the end of May 1944 during the WW II.

Japanese War memorial also known as India peace memorial is built at this site to pay homage to the fallen soldiers of the battle.

Imphal War Museum promoted by Manipur Tourism Forum and WW II Imphal Campaign Foundation funded by Nippon foundation is coming up shortly at the site, which will make the visit to the site more meaningful.
