Located in Dras village, this war memorial is built of pink sand stone and has an epitaph dedicated to the valiant soldiers. The soldiers are the ones who sacrificed everything, even their lives during the Kargil war in 1999 and recaptured the states where Pakistan troops took control over.
The war continued from 8th may to 5th July 1999 and during this time several army men died. There is a gallery named "Manoj Pandey gallery" which showcases the photographs taken during that time, weapons and artillery discovered during the war. Your visit to Dras memorial not only would be a gesture of respect for the Indian army but it surely will leave you overwhelmed with the patriotism.
