Burial Information



Grave Reference:

Coll. grave 11. A. 4-7.


Kohima, the capital city of Nagaland State is a sprawling city over the Naga Hills, some 220 kilometres from the Indo-Burmese border (now known as the Indo-Myanmar) Border. Kohima is best reached by air from Calcutta to Dimapur or from Delhi to Dimapur via Gauhati in Assam State and then by a winding road up the mountains. Kohima is 74 kilometres from Dimapur. It can also be reached by road from Gauhati - a long and difficult journey - and the KOHIMA WAR CEMETERY is on the Battle Ground of Garrison Hill over-looking the city centre. An inner line permit is required to visit Nagaland and sometimes special permission needs to be obtained from the State Governor.
