Likes: the way the cemetery has been maintained with the epic story of the Battle of Kohima documented. Dislikes: the way Indian tourists have scant regard for the sanctity of the cemetery. Truly, Indians are the worst louts!

A lovely hillock overlooking the heart of Kohima town. This hillock is encased in history.and is the last point of advance achieved by the Imperial Japanese army. Here lies the epitaphs of hundreds of soldiers of the Allied Forces and Indian soldiers who fought alongside the allied forces. The place is dotted with wonderful and touching epitaphs. During spring and... More

It is difficult to get a feel for the Battle of Kohima as so much of the key sites have been built on. But this is amazingly evocative and one can get a view of just how desperate the fighting on Garrison Hill was. It is really well tended and it is really nice that the graves seem to have... More

This is a place in the middle of Kohima. This only has war graves. There needed some history and guide to make this more meaningful. Good picturous location for photography of Kohima

Heart was shaken when I saw the age of the Warriors died in 2nd World War..Most of them were between 20-30 some were teenagers also. The view is spectacular with the Cross covering and relenting the souls of all who has given life 2nd world war. First time seen a War Cemetery like this.

The first place I recommend visiting at Kohima is the massive war cemetery. For one, it is right at the centre of town and next, it lets one start the tour of the picturesque and hilly capital with an anchor to connect with its rich history. The cemetery has memorial stones to 1400 (I counted till 1250 before I mixed... More

Memoir of second world war engraved in those tiles. The place is well maintained. has a great view of Kohima town from atop. Visit during the Hornbill fest season. I have seen lots of war cemeteries, but this one indeed the best in North east, hillstation Kohima just added to its charming quiteness.

A wonderful tribute to the brave Allied soldiers who fought the Japanese Army in World War II. The place is elegantly maintained by the Commonwealth body. Hundreds soldiers who lost their lives during the Japanese invasion of Indian soil are laid to rest here. One can see soldiers from different companies/ regiments/countries from the beautiful tombstones which carry the name... More
