Did you know...? Manipur is the birthplace of polo.
The contemporary game began in Manipur, India's northeastern province, and was spread by British military officials in the mid-nineteenth century. It is now well-known all across the world. The current game of polo originated in Manipur, India, where it was called as 'Sagol Kangjei,' 'Kanjai- bazee,' or 'Pulu.' It was the anglicized version of the last, alluding to the wooden ball that was used in the sport's sluggish introduction to the west.
