Local History

Origin of Churachandpur on the bank of Khuga (Tuitha)

Located southwest of Manipur, Churachandpur District covers an area of 4570 kmĀ² and is the largest district within the state of Manipur. The terrain of the district is mainly hilly, with narrow valleys that support wet rice cultivation. Churachandpur town is the district headquarters. Churachandpur (given from the name of Manipur Raja Churachand Singh) is the second-largest town of Manipur, after the state capital, Imphal. Churachandpur is called the "second town" of Manipur and remains the fastest growing town in the state. The inhabitants of Churachandpur town are sometimes called "CCpurians" (since CCpur connotes the entire district population).

The town's population is made up of a number of communities including the Thadou, Hmar, Vaiphei, Paite, Lusei, Simte, Gangte, Zou and immigrants Tedim Chin mainly from Myanmar (now Burma). These communities mainly belong to the Chin-Kuki-Mizo groups of the Tibeto-Burman family. A significant number of Meitei and other plain communities also live in the town but the population is mainly dominated by the Paites. Though each and every tribe can understand the different dilects, Paite is the most popular language in the district.
