Dimapur

Dimapur , Nagaland

Dimapur is probably one of the very few cities in Nagaland which are actually developed. That is the reason why it has the only railhead in Nagaland. Dimapur is names after Dimasa which is the river that flows through it. Today this is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in this part of the country and welcomes people from all over. Dimapur, often described as the ‘Brick City’ by European scholars and also by the Ahoms, was the ancient capital of a ruling nation, the Dimasa, who were once a powerful and predominant race in the Entire North-East India region particularly the Brahmaputra Valley. This is a part of the histort thats shapes Dimapur and makes it the city that it is today. This is also one of the reasons Dimapur still held on to the progressive nature of its past rulers. The seat of capital of Dimapur Kingdom was originally surrounded by bricks walls of four feet wide, sixteen feet high. This place was very highly fortified with tall gates and every precaution to keep the invaders away. Today only the ruins of these ancient bricks remain. The Kachari kings who ruled this place had a tradition of erecting beams to signify all the tribes that they had conquered over. This is one practise that is still prevalent amongst the tribes that live in this area. Now as one of the fastest growing cities in this region Dimapur is embracing modernisation. The only regret is that the past is slowly dissolving and going down in ruins which are not being preserved. Chumukedima Village is an ancient village famous for its various waterfalls. This and the Kachari ruins are two of the most intriguing places to visit while you are here.
