Kohima
Kohima Map Kohima is a scenic hill station with breath taking natural beauty & amazing views of the Naga Hills. It is nestled by the eastern frontiers of the mighty Himalayas & is blessed with a fascinating combination of natural beauty, ethnic simplicity & an unhurried pace of life. The Kohima village epitomises the Naga tribal lifestyle with a pretty ceremonial gate, unique to the Naga tribe.

The district of Kohima provides a museum housing local historical artefacts, a zoological park, a sanctuary, valleys, self-governing villages as well as a wholesale market, a popular place to watch the visual feast of the Naga females in their splendid tribal costumes. Kohima is also home to the largest cathedral in the north eastern region of India.

Kohima is the site of a battle between the Japanese & the British in the work of World War II. In 1944, the Japanese tried to capture the Kohima bridge. The battle was a turning point in the Japanese offensive in to India & after 18 days of fighting, the Japanese were forced to retreat. A massive cemetery & memorial for the Allied war dead now lie on the slopes of Garrison Hill, in what was one time the Deputy Commissioner’s tennis court.
