War Memorial To Honor The Sacrifices Of Our Soldiers

 Punjab’s CM Prakash Singh Badal on Sunday inaugurated the ‘Punjab State War Heroes Memorial and Museum’ dedicated to the heroes of the state who have sacrificed their lives for the Nation. During the inauguration he said “this state-of-the-art memorial would be a befitting tribute to commemorate the remarkable contribution made by the Punjabi soldiers and officers to defend the sovereignty of the country surpassing the long period of more than 600 years right from the times of sixth Guru of Sikhs Sri Guru Hargobind Singh Ji till Kargil war”.

Punjab government has spent over 100 crore on this project that honors our soldiers and martyrs which is over a spread of 7 acres on the Amritsar-Attari road. The museum has eight galleries depicting the themes from the times of Guru Hargobind Singh, till the Kargil war of 1999. Museum also includes ‘Sherman’ and ‘Patton’ tanks that were captured during the war of 1965. With this names of 3,500 martyrs are inscribed on the memorial/

It is the first time in the history of the nation that a memorial has been constructed to pay tribute to our soldiers and officers. The Punjab government has dedicated the memorial to the nation.
