why my App has two manifest files

I opened android project in android studio and I found that that project contains two manifest files as shown below in the image.

the first manifest contains the activities in the projects while the other manifest contains the permissions!!

please let me know how that is possible and why??

Note: I used to work with eclipse and I have not seen that feature before
