Kohima is the capital of Nagaland, which gained recognition during World War II, as it was here that the Japanese attack was halted and they were forced to retreat. The War Cemetery in Kohima is a symbolic memorial of the ultimate sacrifices made by the Indian soldiers.

One of the more popular tourist destinations in the state, this laidback charming town is a perfect getaway from the bustling city life. Kohima is named after the wild flowering plant Kewhi, which grows in the mountains.
