Amritsar is a major commercial and cultural centre in the heart of Punjab. The city is the spiritual and cultural center of the Sikh religion and is home to the Harmandir Sahib, also known as the Golden Temple. Respectfully marvel at the Indian and Pakistani soldiers who march-off nightly at the Wagha Border, and at the Jallian Wala Bagh the site of the 1919 Amritsar Massacre in 1919.

War Memorial & Museum, Amritsar charting battle history from antiquity to 1999 in 8 Galleries & a 137-ft.-tall sword memorial.

Reviewed By Travel_inspired_view - Mumbai, India

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 m high stainless steel sword, representing the strength and courage of the people of Punjab while defending the nation in the hour of need. Names of martyrs are inscribed on the memorial. Apart from the memorial, the campus exhibits pictures of the brave soldiers, their brief bio-data, a MiG-23 and a model of the decommissioned aircraft carrier ship, INS Vikrant, three tanks have also been displayed - a 'Sherman' Pakistani tank which was captured in 1965 by India's 7th Light Cavalry, a Pakistani 'Patton' tank that the Indian Army secured in 1971 and India's Centurion Tank that figured prominently in the 1965 and 1971 Wars. 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.
