Situated near the India Gate in Delhi, the National War Memorial was built to commemorate the Armed Forces of the country. Known to be the latest edition in the list of monuments in the National Capital region, the memorial was very recently inaugurated by the honourable Prime Minister of India - Shri Narendra Modi on the 25th of February, 2019. Sprawling over a gigantic 40 acres of land area, the memorial is constructed around the existing chhatris (canopy) and is in complete sync and harmony with the aesthetics of the area.
The walls of the National War Memorial are inscribed with the names of the great martyrs and fearless heroes of the country that include the martyrs during 1947–48, 1961 (Goa), 1962 (China), 1965, 1971, 1987 (Siachen), 1987-88 (Sri Lanka), 1999 (Kargil), and other operations such as Operation Rakshak etc. The area adjoining the memorial is called the Princess Park and there is a proposal to build a National War Museum in the area. The two will be connected through an underground tunnel or a subway.
