Devotees stand on the paved courtyard in Shree Shree Govindajee Temple of Imphal and give their offerings to the priests. Among all the temples in the city, Shree Shree Govindajee Temple is the most important one. This temple was built in the early 18th century under the rule of Rajarishi Bhagyachandra. During festivals, the temple is flocked by thousands of people, who come from far and wide to offer prayers. The best time to visit the temple is during Holi, also known as Doljatra or Yaosong in Manipur. During this festival boys and girls perform Thaba Changba folk dance, all night.
