A visit to beautiful hill station of McLeodganj is incomplete without a visit to the Martyr’s Memorial.Ever since I planned my hiking trip to the Indrahaar pass,visiting the war memorial was on top of my mind.Nestled in the picturesque McLeodganj,the war memorial is a living testimony to the courage and bravery of our gallant soldiers.
I have visited the Kargil war memorial at Drass and the Leh war memorial and this is the third war memorial I have visited.I always took pride in the sacrifice of our brave soldiers to defend our motherland.
The home to the war heores
Here in Himachal,the land of the Param Vir Chakra Vikram Batra,the saga of sacrifice of the valiant Himachalis for our motherland is inscripted in the golden letters forever in the war memorial.This war memorial is erected to pay respects to all the brave Himachali soldiers who have sacrificed their blood and martyred in the post independence wars to defend our country.
The Martyr’s Memorial
A visit to the war memorial will evoke the striking sense of patriorism in our hearts.It was inscripted there “This symbolises the ever burning flame of National freedom”.It indeed symbolises the same in letter and spirit.It was really an honour to visit the sacred War Memorial and I am privileged to pay my respects to our war heroes
