This WWII cemetery is very nicely positioned on the hills with a broad view of Kohima. It is laid on terraces and a great sense of peace and quietness surrounds you during the whole visit.

There is nothing in this war cemetery to indicate the great contributions of persons of Indian Origin which was a great shock for me during my visit. Opens in the early morning and the entry is free.

Dignified memorial to those (on the British side) who lost their lives in this decisive battle. Sadly most in their early 20s. Also 2 Victoria Cross awardees.
