Catholic Church Overview

Ranked 6 of 17 sightseeing in Kohima

Catholic Church is considered as one of the biggest churches in the north-east region of India and is one of its kinds in the entire Kohima. In 1948, Sisters of the Missionaries of Christ Jesus came to Kohima to facilitate services at one of the civil hospital of the region. At the same time, this church began to spread Christianity, which produced substantial results. As a result of this attempt, separate diocese for the states of Manipur and Nagaland were created.

The church has experienced steady growth because of the missionaries and its believers. Since then, various services offered by this church like educational and social services have spread in the whole region. Located on the Aradhurah Hill, this church is also known for its architecture, which reflects the blend of indigenous and creative art.

Admirable modern architecture

The Reconciliation Cathedral is the biggest church of Eastern India. The modern architecture is admirable. Located on the Aradura Hilltop, it also offers a good panoramic view of Kohima. It is worth visiting on a Sunday during the mass. The religious frescoes are also equally impressive!
