Lai Haraoba Rituals and Dances

The Lai Haraoba is an important religious festival celebrated primarily among the Meitei community. The festival is as much about religious rites and beliefs as it is about the ‘Manipuri’ dance form. It is also a visual display of Meitei customs and traditions. The collection in this gallery presents photographs collected from different periods and various parts of Manipur. It also includes stage adaptations and experiments of the dance traditions of the Lai Haraoba at venues across the globe.

 

The photographs in the photo gallery are sourced from the collections of Rekha Konsam, Soibam Pritam Singh, Manju Elangbam, Ronen Akoijam and LAIHUI.
