Things to do

Kohima War Cemetery

Kohima is home to an immaculately maintained war cemetery that houses the graves of more than 1400 Indian, British, and Allied soldiers who were killed in or near Kohima in the year 1944 as they fought to resist a Japanese invasion of India. This invasion came from the direction of Burma and is considered to be one of the fiercest battles of the Second World War. These used to be the terraced lawns of a bungalow owned by the British Deputy Commissioner, which is now a cemetery. It is said that the most savage of fights took place across the tennis court which is located near the top, where you can see the white marker lines to this day. At the top of the cemetery, you can see a memorial that is dedicated to the more than 900 Sikh and Hindu soldiers who were cremated and not buried after the battle. In the campaign, it is said that this failure of the Japanese where they failed to take Kohima was the turning point. Just above Imphal Road, about 550 m up from the gate of the cemetery, a disabled tank from the battle remains in situ, with a sign that describes its story.

Central Market

Just outside the Kohima Local Ground stadium, off Razhü Junction, is a small but fascinating local market that serves many of the exotic foods of the Naga tribes. This includes a number of delicacies, like mefi (wriggling hornet grubs), snails, silkworms, frogs, snails, crabs in small bamboo baskets, and dried fish, as well as a number of exotic condiments such as dried and fermented bamboo shoots and the fiery Raja chillies.
