War Memorial Overview

Ranked 15 of 54 sightseeing in Dharamshala
The War Memorial is at the very entrance of Dharamsala town. Surrounded by landscaped gardens, and poetic little paths, you are led to the Memorial by a storybook pine trail. The War Memorial was set up to commemorate the soldiers who fought for India in post independent India and a lot of thought has been put into its creation. For example, the wall of the memorial is curved, signifying the continuity of life and the fact that these great soldiers will immortal in the minds of Indians forever. At the Memorial, you can also look out for inscriptions and memorials dating as far as 1046! A little caf? near the Memorial serves snacks and refreshments and right next door is another beautiful structure, the GPC College that's well worth a visit! Make a trip to the Memorial, if for nothing else, than for the sense of pride one feels at standing at a Memorial of such brave men.

Nothing much to see here

The Dharamsala War memorial is near the HPCA Stadium. The memorial has the map of India beautifully created in it. Apart from that there's nothing to see there. There are tanks at the entrance. We couldn't visit the memorial from inside.

Enjoy the place

It is a good and peaceful place to visit on road while entering Dharamshala. Here you can see names of soldiers and the park, fountain and childrens park. In and outside, there are old tank models and aircraft, which can be enjoyed for clicking pics by children.

Situated at the entrance to Dharamshala is the war memorial. It is a good place to visit, making you aware of the soldiers fighting in the borders for our motherland.
