According to a British-era document from the Manipur State Archives, 23 men, including King Kulachandra and his brothers, were transported for life to the Andamans. While some died there, Kulachandra was released and shifted elsewhere before his death. The 23 are considered war heroes in Manipur. That is why Mount Harriet is an important symbol of the Anglo-Manipur War of 1891.

Manipur this season has got a reason to celebrate after the Centre renamed the Andaman and Nicobar Islands' 'Mount Harriet', as 'Mount Manipur' in the honour of Manipur's Maharaja Kulchandra Dhwaj Singh and 22 other freedom fighters who were imprisoned in the cellular jail also known as the Kalapani.
