It is a War Cemetery. Very, very touching to know country men who laid their lives. The immortal lines by John Maxwell Edmonds are inscribed in the bronze panel "When You Go Home, Tell Them Of Us And Say, For Their Tomorrow, We Gave Our Today" I solute all of them and pray for them.

I liked the way the memorial has been kept neat and clean.There is nothing to dislike.One of the soldier was just 16 years of age while many were between 22 and 28. The dead were from many faiths... Hindus,Sikhs,Muslims,British,Gorkhas,Christians .. but all of them were great soldiers who sacrificed their life.A salute to all the great souls.

The whole family were amazed when we saw the picture of J.E.Brandon's grave stone. He would have been my great uncle. I have all the letters he ever wrote to his mother, sister and wife. I also have his flight log book. It has all his flight details including the one where his flight went down. We hope to visit... More

A fitting tribute to the brave allied soldiers who perished in the Battle of Kohima. The cemetery is very well maintained,and is an ideal place to revisit history.

A serene place well maintained by the commonwealth war graves commision. Peaceful place right in the heart of Kohima town. Salute to those young blood who were buried there. May they rest in peace.

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!

those days are gone, but reminiscence does not betray ever. i visited Dimapur, Kohima very recently on a personal tour and found a complete new dimapur and kohima different from what i met in my early days back to 1977-78-79. i joined some company in 1975 and they transfered to then Dimapur, a mere small town with an airport maintained...

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
