"The whole atmosphere is full of patriotism"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 29, 2016
The whole atmosphere is full of patriotism. We reached to the spot by 3.30 pm. The atmosphere was bit cloudy. We were welcomed by Army personals. There is a small canteen run by Army which offers free hot tea and hot drinking water every traveler. Army personnel took us to the Jaswant Singh War Memorial which is build in the memory of The Great Hero of Indian Army Jaswant Singh Rawat. Purposely I will not share his story here. You must have to visit this place and listen the whole story from Army personnel. The feeling can't be expressed in words. There are many interesting things which need to see personally.

"A very brave man"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Oct 15, 2014
A memorial for the Paramvir Chakra Jaswant Singh who defended the area even after the death of his Colleagues in the Indo-China war of 1962. It is said he battled for 72 hours alone. Even now the army washes his uniform regularly and believes that he still comes back to wear them.

"Be Face to Face With Jaswant"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted May 10, 2014
This is the caption of the place. This is a small memorial in the memory of Great Rifle man Jaswant Sing. In 1962 war he fought with the Chinese army single handedly and killed 200 Chinese soldiers. Later he was arrested, hanged with a piece of metal rope in an adjacent tree. Chinese took his head to China. His body was buried at the same place. This is the history of Jaswant Garh. Indian Army serves free tea to all visitors. Salute to the Brave man.

Jaswant Singh is the real hero for us. His sacrifice for our country is wordless. I am proud to be Indian. And when you visit this place at least try to feel the value of that place.
