Why to visit War Cemetery

All history buffs should not miss the opportunity to tour the Kohima war cemetery, which was created in April 1944. This cemetery, which is well-kept with lush foliage, manicured flowers, and lawns, is devoted to the 10,000 Allied soldiers who died during the Japanese invasion during World War II. Trekking to this location is much more adventurous and entertaining, making it one of the most popular spots to visit in Kohima Nagaland.
The cemetery has two conspicuous markers, the first of which reads, 'Here, surrounding the tennis court of the Deputy Commissioner, lie men who served in the battle of Kohima, in which they and their companions eventually ended the conquest of India by Japanese forces in April 1944.' 'When you go home, tell them about us, and say for your tomorrow, we gave our today,' says the second.

Location: Garrison Hill, around 1 km from Kohim
