Uyok Ching of Kakching once signified the culture of the perseverance of various plants and trees, especially pine trees at the small hill lock. While after generations, the very significance of the hill has beautified with newly constructed gardens, view spots, well rejuvenated religious sacred places. And now this special small hill at the southern part of Kakching, under Thoubal District, Manipur is popularly known as Kakching Garden.
