Ima Kaithal of Imphal is Asia's largest women's market, come here and enjoy unique shopping

It is said to be Asia's largest women's market also known as a Mother Market. The unique thing about this market named Ima Kaithal was that the shopkeepers here are women only. Thousands of women in traditional costumes sit here decorating their shops. Around 5000 women shop in this market. Apparently it is said to be the largest women's market in Asia. How many things are available in these shops, from fish, vegetables, spices, fruits to local chaat. A market run by Emma Cathal Mothers. This market, which gives a wonderful introduction to mother power, is probably the only market in the world, which is run only by women.

Around 500 years old, this market is considered to have started from the 16th century. Manipur is believed to have had an old-fashioned Lulup-Kaaba, a bonded labor system, in which men are sent away to farm and fight wars. In such a situation, women used to drive home. Used to work in the fields and sell the grain sown. This necessitated a market where only women sold goods. These courageous women of Ima Kaithal openly protested when the British government tried to forcibly implement economic reforms in Manipur. These women started a movement called Nupi Lane (Women's War). Protest against the anti-people policies of the British under Nupi Take, Conducted a procession and procession. This movement continued till the second world war. Ima Kaithal became synonymous with the mother power of Manipur rather than just a market.

 Even after independence it was established as a place of discussion on social subjects. It is also said that in the absence of print media, people used to come here so that they could get to know the surrounding news. Only married women can run a shop in this market. These women also have their own organization which gives loans to them when needed. If you come here at night, the bright faces of women in the light of light will fascinate you. These women have tremendous confidence. It is also a unique experience to see the surroundings. Here women are seen wearing traditional fennec (a type of lungi worn on the lower part of the body) and ennephis (a kind of shawl) above. In the absence of media, people used to come here so that they could get to know the surrounding news. Only married women can run a shop in this market. These women also have their own organization which gives loans to them when needed.
