Tawang War Memorial, Tawang Overview

The Tawang War Memorial, a stupa dedicated to the martyrs of the 1962 Indo-China war, stands as a solemn tribute amidst the serene landscapes of Tawang. Overlooking the scenic Tawang-Chu valley., the 40 feet structure incorporates Buddhist architectural elements, including prayer wheels, colorful serpents, and flags, donated by the local community. Inside, statues of deities such as Lord Buddha add to the sanctity of the place.

Surrounded by snow-capped mountains and rugged hills, the memorial offers a panoramic view of the surrounding beauty. Fluttering flags, including the National Flag and those of the regiments involved in the war, adorn the site. The memorial honors the 2,420 armed forces members who sacrificed their lives in the Kameng district during the conflict, with a dedication plaque bearing the poignant inscription "Their names liveth for evermore."

Divided into two halls, the memorial features a museum displaying belongings of the martyrs and an auditorium hosting a sound and light show recounting the war's events. Wall-mounted photographs and exhibits showcase the soldiers' bravery and weaponry used by both sides. Glass encased displays and maps illustrate the rugged terrain and border areas where battles occurred.
