The concept of a manifold is central to many parts of geometry and modern mathematical physics because it allows more complicated structures to be described and understood in terms of the relatively well-understood properties of Euclidean space. A manifold is roughly a continuous topological space which is locally similar to Euclidean space but which need not be Euclidean globally. Fibre bundle is a very interesting manifold and is formed by combining a manifold M with all its tangent spaces. A fibre bundle is a manifold that looks locally like a product of two manifolds, but is not necessarily a product globally. In this study some definitions are given to make the study easier to the common readers. An attempt has taken here to discuss elementary ideas of manifolds and fibre bundles in an easier way.
