Tranquility Commemorating Supreme Sacrifice
 

The picturesque Kohima War Cemetery, a symbolic memorial commemorating the memories of the officers and men who sacrificed their lives during World War II, is a must visit. Well maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, and steeped in tranquility, it is embellished by two tall crosses against the backdrop of seasonal roses and lush grass. The gentle hill where the cemetery is located is embellished by stone markers with shining bronze plaques, each one commemorating the names of the men who sacrificed their lives.

The famous inscription written on the War Memorial stone reads:

 
When you go home, Tell them of us and say, For your tomorrow, We gave our today.

The Battle of Kohima was a critical battle of the Burma Campaign in World War II, fought around the town of Kohima in north-east India from April 4 to June 22, 1944. It marked the limit of the Japanese offensive into India in 1944 and was described as the "Stalingrad of the East".
