Punjab's millitary pride, India's millitary Pride beautifully captured through exhibits which when heard silently tends to speak their own history. A good place to be if u love to know the struggles of war India faced through ages!

Here you can experience the history of the numerous campaigns waged by military. You can also experience a motion assisted video of the highlights explained in the theater. There are tanks, planes, and all sorts of weaponry on display. Pretty cool exhibits.

Punjab State war memorial is a big project. It shows you a brief history from starting to end. Statutes are looking like real. Fighter plane , 7d theatre attracts every time.

Thought it is very important and ambitious project by Govt. of Punjab, in my personal opinion, is an average experience when especially the story of war and freedom has got so much more to explore. The memorial has monumental stainless steel Sowrd and picturesque murals....More
