The Isandlwana Hill is situated in the province of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. It is the site of the famous battle which took place on January 22, 1879 between a battalion of British troops and Zulu warriors. Isandlwana Hill marks the battle where the native warriors defeated an entire battalion of the British Empire. The place is known for the memorials which mark the graves of the British soldiers who were killed on that day. Isandlwana Hill has a military significance as the underestimation of the British Empire and the superior ambush tactics of the Zulu warriors led to one of the biggest upsets in the history of warfare. It has, in time, attained significance equal to the slaying of Goliath at the hands of David. Isandlwana Hill is one of the most visited tourist sites.
