INFORMATION ABOUT KOHIMA
Kohima has the advantage of being centrally located - being bounded by the state of Assam on the west, Wokha district on the north, Zunheboto and Phek districts on the east and Manipur state on the south.
Kohima, situated in the south at an altitude of 1444 m above sea level, occupies pride of place as the capital city of Nagaland. One of the eleven districts of the state, Kohima is the first seat of modern administration as the Headquarter of Naga Hills District (then under Assam) with the appointment of G.H. Damant as Political Officer in 1879. When Nagaland became a full fledged state on 1st December 1963, Kohima was christened as the state capital. Since then, parts of Kohima have been carved out twice - once in 1973 to create Phek District and in 1998 when Dimapur was declared as a separate district. The total area of the district is 1041 Sq. kms including Dimapur, as territories are yet to be clearly demarcated.
