Nature could not have been kinder to Nagaland . the exquisitely
picturesque landscapes, the vibrantly colourful sunrise and sunset,
lush and verdant flora
this is a land that represents unimaginable
beauty, moulded perfectly for a breath taking experience.
It is indeed a land of folklore passed down the generations through
word of mouth. Here music is an integral part of life; folk songs
eulogizing ancestors, the brave deeds of warriors and traditional
heroes and poetic love songs immortalizing ancient tragic love stories.
Nagaland has a single-chamber Legislative Assembly with 60 seats.
The state sends two members to the Indian national parliament: one
to the Rajya Sabha (upper house) and one to the Lok Sabha (lower
house). There are seven local government administrative districts
- Mokokchung, Tuensang, Mon, Wokha, Zunheboto, Phek and Kohima.
The capital is Kohima.
