This is the first place to head to in Kohima. The Cemetery is beautifully located overlooking the city and is well maintained by the commonwealth. It serves as a good starting point as it gives one an insight into the battle of Kohima which in many a manner defines the city. There is also a lovely epitaph located right at the bottom of the cemetery - "When you go home, tell them of us and say for your tomorrow we gave our today". Each headstone is heartbreaking in its own way - the Indians, Burmese, English and a few unknowns... all who fought together and died so very very young.
The cemetery closes as early as 4-4:30pm (as does rest of Kohima!) so plan your trip accordingly.
