Чем вы займетесь

Like most battles that took place in the South-East Asian theater, the battle of Kohima remain relatively unknown because the world was too preoccupied with Europe. The battle of Kohima was fought on this ground which sealed the fate of Tokyo's ambitions in South Asia. The War Cemetery was built on this ground dedicated to soldiers of the allied forces. We’ll tell you about the significance of this battle, it’s context, how it was set up and even stories of individuals who fought this battle.

You will meet us at The Heritage Bungalow (former Home of the Deputy Commissioner, and is one of the older bungalows found in Kohima) on Garrison Hill by 9:25 AM. The walk will commence exactly at 9: 30 am and end at 11:30 am. At The Heritage, we’ll have a brief chat on World War II history. After which, we will proceed down towards the Lee Grant Tank which was left after the 2nd World War. There is some information about the site written in the Monoliths which were erected by the Kohima Educational Trust. Post this, we will walk down to the famous World War ll Cemetery for a tour and learn more about the battle with our local expert, whose Grand-uncle is a war veteran.

We’ll leave the War cemetery around 11:30 AM and sit down at our last stop, Dream Cafe for a breathtaking view of Kohima city and chat over a chai/coffee.

My grand uncle, a war veteran was one of the few Angamis , who took part in the battle and lived to narrate his story to us. I have spent my childhood learning the history of Battle of Kohima & Battle for Imphal, from someone who actually lived the experience.

Где вы побываете

The Heritage Bungalow on Garrison Hill was the Deputy Commissioner’s bungalow. During the battle, the imperial army held their base here.

Lee Grant Tank, in 1944, under the treacherous monsoon conditions, this tank careered down the hill, lost a track and crashed against a tree before coming to a halt where it came under enemy fire.

The War Cemetery was built dedicated to soldiers of the 2nd division of the allied forces.
