Chahi Taret Khuntakpa

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Chahi Taret Khuntakpa" (Meitei: ꯆꯍꯤ ꯇꯔꯦꯠ ꯈꯨꯟꯇꯥꯛꯄ) (literally, "Seven Years Devastation"[1]) was a dark period in the history of modern Manipur, during which Manipur was occupied by the Burmese empire, imposing chaos and anarchism to the kingdom, from 1819 AD to 1826 AD (3212 MF-3218 MF).[2][3][4][5]

Background[change | change source]

When Marjit ascended the throne of Manipur, the Burmese empire attacked the kingdom in 1819 AD.[1] At that time, due to lack of unity among the royal family members of Manipur, the situation was overcome by the enemy. Thus, the kingdom was annexed by the Burmese forces. [2][3][4][5]
