  • All the galleries a must see. Spare two to three hours of your time. If more, even better. The Memorial and Museum complex is beautifully planned and well maintained. A great effort. Thanks to GM Col HP Singh and his entire team for a job well done. More funding needed for expansion of galleries.
  • On the way to Attari Border from Amritsar. Punjab is the sword arm of the country and has been on the invasion route to the heartland of India since, the beginning of the recorded history. Punjab State War Heroes Memorial & Museum, The memorial museum is directed to showcase the fabulous gallantry deeds of the brave-hearts of Punjab. It is planned to immortalize the deeds of brave soldiers and to inspire and infuse the spirit of patriotism in the youth.  This place not only gives information but plays homage to the brave-hearts of the state. This memorial has silicone statues of the brave-hearts, notes on their bravery & achievements and a virtual depiction of the actual battle scenes. The beautiful structure has 45 meters tall Stainless steel sword. A mural also has been built to commemorate the Battle of Saragarhi and the names of the 21 Sikh martyrs of the battle have been engraved on it. The campus also has a 7D auditorium, facilitating an almost realistic experience of different war zones. One cannot leave this place without feeling thankful for the sacrifices. What brave souls, what sacrifices, what achievements and what passion for the Nation!!!! Amazing!!! A must visit. I hope every state in India comes up with such a memorial to pay homage to their martyrs and war heroes.
