Kohima - Nagaland

Discover Kohima

Kohima, the hilly capital of Nagaland, is famous for its pleasant climate and unspoilt natural beauty with quaint hills, emerald green forests and a picturesque landscape.

Built during the British Raj, as a getaway destination in the East India, Kohima is home to the Naga and Kulkis tribes. Kohima’s bustling main bazaar is a good place to buy colourful shawls woven in distinctly local style. Apart from being a kaleidoscope of ethnic culture, Kohima finds its place in history as the site of an intense fight with the Japanese, a part of a 64-day long battle during the World War II. One of the must visit places here include the Commonwealth War Cemetery, the final resting place of thousands of brave soldiers of the World War II.
