Kohima: Hundreds of tourists today thronged the Hornbill Festival at Kisma near here to witness the cultural heritage of Northeastern states, which was being showcased at the annual week-long event.

Cultural troupes from all the seven Northeastern states participated in various programmes at the Naga Heritage Complex.

Participation of troupes from Korea, Japan, Thailand and Myanmar in the second day of the festival, sponsored by North East Zonal Cultural Council since 2006, added colour to it.

British deputy High Commissioner Sanjay Wadvani yesterday inaugurated the event.

A daily cultural show named 'Heralding Culture' on 16 Naga tribes will begin from tomorrow at the main open arena of the heritage complex.
