Samban-Lei Sekpil is the world’s tallest topiary. Created by Moirangthem Okendra Kumbi, it is modelled in the shape of a series of open umbrellas and spheres.

Moirangthem started mending the Samban-Lei in 1983, originally planted by his sister in a small mustard oil can. Samban-Lei is a flowering shrub use for fencing gardens in ManipurSamban means fencing and Lei means flower in Manipuri language. Sekpil indicates the shape of the topiary and is derived from an ancient Manipuri word for a decorative bamboopost with rounded structured cloths forming canopy in many stages. The sekpil, at present also called as “Shattra” is generally used in worship and festivals in Manipur.
