Punjab State War Heroes Memorial & Museum Amritsar Near Wagah Border Amritsar – amritsarhelpost.com


Punjab is the sword arm of the country and has been on the invasion route to the heart land of India since, the beginning of the recorded history. It is an amazing reality that the heroic people of this land across gender have never reneged on their duty towards the Idea of India in terms of living and dying by the military ethos of ‘Naam, Namak, Nishan” (Honour, Integrity, Flag) always and every time there has been a call for duty. 

The Punjab State War Heroes’ Memorial and Museum is located on a plot of about three hectares abutting Amritsar – Attari Road on the outskirts of the holy city of Amritsar. Its location on the National Highway-1, and that too only 18 kms away from Indo-Pak International border makes it a prominent landmark and source of attraction for the tourists who visit a daily event of interesting beating-retreat ceremony at the Wagah Border.

The hallmark of the magnificent campus is a 45-metre high stainless steel sword on the central edifice. It represents strength and courage of the people of Punjab while defending the nation in the hour of need. This iconic structure stands atop a circular platform surrounded by water body. Names of nearly 3500 martyrs are inscribed on the memorial built at an elevation of 4 metres.

The memorial-museum is aimed at to showcase the splendid 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.
