The guard of the nation

The IMA is a restricted here which you can visit only on special permission. But is you can just manage to enter this place, it is just amazing. The uniformed army personnel and the entire ambiance is really nice.

Amazing place

To begin with, this place that is IMA is not open for tourists. You can visit the academy if you are serving in the Indian armed forces or you have some relative or friend serving or retired from the defence forces. The place is a beauty.

Awesome experience

We visited Military Academy in Mussoorie and saw all the army people and their hardwork. They perform their regular training and exercises during the sunrise in a big ground.

Pride of our nation

Indian Military Academy is the pride of our nation. Though we need special permission to visit the place. We were fortunate to view the place from outside and meet some of the candidates.
