Chumukedima originally called Nechu Guard and also known as Samagutin during World War II is a census town in the Dimapur district of Nagaland state in India. It is at a distance of 14 km from Dimapur on National Highway 39. It is the district headquarters of Dimapur. The village gives a panoramic view of the exotic city of Dimapur. This namesake village is a rapidly growing urban hub of Nagaland. Local language of the village is English.

It served as the first headquarters of the then Naga Hills District of Assam during the time of British rule in early 19th century. Chumukedima is one of the fastest growing towns in Nagaland. In fact, it forms part of the Dimapur - Chumoukedima urban area which is the largest and the fastest growing urban hub of Nagaland. The town's population has grown by nearly five times in the last two decades.

It is located in the foothills of Naga Hills. The Tourist Village on the top of a hill projects a bird's eye view the whole of Dimapur and other parts of Karbi Anglong district of Assam. Waterfalls are also located in this area.

The government is also keen to form a Dimapur- Chumukedima urban area considering the rate of growth of the area. It has been seen that the place has grown nearly five times in the last 20 years.
