War Cemetery

Top choice historic site in Kohima

This immaculately maintained cemetery contains the graves of 1400 British, Commonwealth and Indian soldiers – killed in action during WWII – laid out across stepped and manicured lawns. It stands at the strategic junction of the Dimapur and Imphal roads, a site that saw intense fighting against the Japanese during the 64-day Battle of Kohima, now widely considered the bloodiest of all WWII battles.
