Imphal has the great place for shopping and it is very clear from an exciting marketplace named Khwairamband Bazaar. It is also known as the NupiKeithel or Ima Market. The chief striking facet of this market is that all the shops, around 3000 shops, are run by women shopkeepers. This key factor shows that Manipuri women are self-dependant and have their own business too. This market is only open from morning 9 to 7 in the evening. One can see here the shops of eatable items like fruits, vegetables, fish, meat, etc. and also the shops of clothes and woolens also.
