Overview

KOHIMA WAR CEMETERY lies on the battle ground of Garrison Hill. No trace remains of the bungalow, which was destroyed in the fighting, but white concrete lines mark and preserve permanently the historic tennis court. The cemetery now contains 1,420 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War. At the highest point in the cemetery stands the KOHIMA CREMATION MEMORIAL commemorating 917 Hindu and Sikh soldiers whose remains were cremated in accordance with their faith.

A very popular spot and nice place to chill out. Extremely well maintained and peaceful. Of course it is the British colonial take on history - might be a good idea to balance it off looking into the Naga view on history as well -...More

This is a place not to miss: immaculately maintained, but not in a military sense. Well designed plaques record the date of death, age and regiment of over 4,000 British and Indian soldiers who died in 1944. So many young deaths
