India Peace Memorial is situated at Red Hill among the lush green hills of Manipur, in Bishnupur district, at around 16 kms from Imphal. The India Peace Memorial is locally known as Lokpaching and is considered a sacred location.
The peace memorial was constructed by a Japanese War Veteran Lt. General Iwaichi Fujiwara in memory of Japanese martyrs who gave up their lives in the battle between the British and Japanese during the World War II. The memorial has been sponsored by the Japanese government.
The memorial has the serenity and simplicity of Japanese design.
