PLACES TO VISIT IN KOHIMA, NAGALAND
IN NATURE'S CRADLE
Blessed with mesmerizing natural beauty, Nagaland as a whole, can be called a tourist hotspot; yet, several exceptionally dazzling places have been spotted and developed by the government to promote tourism in Nagaland. Since this exotic state is still developing in terms of infrastructure, the light of tourism has not reached in many places making them even more exciting and fascinating to explorer.
Kohima district, the capital of Nagaland, consists of many villages where tourists can lodge. All these villages are managed by village communities under the state's Village Tourism Board. Kohima is now a tapestry of all Naga tribes because of its administrative status but earlier it was an Angami Naga homeland.
During the Second World War, a bloody but victorious war was fought against the Japanese, by the allied forces in Kohima. A picturesque war cemetery, in the heart of the city, is situated to pay tribute to the British and Indian soldiers.
