Meitei literature or Manipuri literature is the literature written in Meitei language (officially called Manipuri language). It refers to the texts composed in Meitei language since the 15th century BC till present. Most of them are associated with prose, fiction, drama, poetry and Sanamahism, the Meitei religion, and were composed in Ancient Manipur, Medieval Manipur and Modern Manipur. The Puya (Meitei texts) served as the only basis of literature, besides the oral literature, in both ancient and medieval times.
