Manggarai regency is a regency in East Nusa Tenggara province of Indonesia, situated on the island of Flores. Established in 1958[2] the regency was reduced in size and population by the separation of Manggarai Barat regency in 2003 and of Manggarai Timur regency in 2007. The population of the residual Manggarai Regency was 292,037 at the 2010 Census, but the latest official estimate (as at mid 2018) is 318,115.[3] The capital of the regency is Ruteng.

The Liang Bua archeological site is in Manggarai regency, about 10 km to the north of Ruteng.
