Kohima Village (BARA BASTI)

Kohima Village, Travel to Kohima Village, Tourist attractions of Nagaland, Tours HolidaysThis village has a traditional Naga traditional gateway carved with motifs of guns, warriors and symbols of prosperity at the entrance to the village. The traditional Naga house built here had crossed 'horns' on the gables, carved heads to signify the status of the family, a huge basket to hold the grain in front of the house.

There is, for instance, a ceremonial gateway- the traditional entrance to all Naga Villages- carved with defensive motifs of warriors and guns, and the symbols of prosperity the Mithun. Further up. And to the side of the road, the old gate still stands in its own little shelter, still respected in its retirement.

And still further into the heart of the steeply- rising Alage is a house built in the traditional Naga style with the up thrust crossed 'horns' highest the gable, carved Mithun heads to point to the position of the owners, a vast basket granary in the Verandah, and a trough in which to make rice beer for the whole group of people.

The nearest airport and railhead are at Dimapur, Nagaland's gateway and commercial centre.
