In the title complex, [Mn(SO4)(C10H9N5)(H2O)4]·2H2O, the Mn2+ cation is six-coordinated by one N atom from a 1-[(1H-1,2,3-benzotriazol-1-yl)methyl]-1H-imidazole ligand and five O atoms from one monodentate sulfate ligand and four water molecules in a distorted octahedral geometry. In the crystal, adjacent molecules are linked through O—H⋯O and O—H⋯N hydrogen bonds into a three-dimensional network.
