About Kohima

A small pleasant town surrounded by hills, Kohima is a district of Nagaland state and home of the Angami Naga tribe. Kohima is situated at an altitude of 1500 m and the town is located on the top of a high ridge as the town serpentines along the top of the mountain ranges as is typical of most Naga settlements. The city is famous in history for World War II of the decisive battle, fought on the tennis court of the British deputy commissioner’s house, that finally stopped the Japanese advance into India in April 1944. The objective was to reach Dimapur, a vital railhead for supplies to British Army units in forward areas. The name Kohima, was officially given by the British as they could not pronounce the Angami names Kewhima or Kewhira.
