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 had been carved out twice - once in 1973 to create Phek District and in 1998 when Dimapur was declared as a separate district.
