Built in the names of brave soldiers who got martyrdom, this is one of the best place to visit and people generally come around for a hang out. Specially in evening to night.

It is pretty daunting site. A very majestic structure with loads of history attached to it. It gives a great sense of pride to just be around.

Great to see and take a picture. Not worth hanging around, the grounds are dirty and full of men and children trying to sell you things. Was the first time on my trip so far that I was being hassled. I wouldn’t recommend visiting alone
