PM to open National War Memorial today

Feb 25, 2019 13:45 IST

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will dedicate the National War Memorial to the nation today. The memorial, near India Gate in New Delhi, is a tribute to soldiers who laid down their lives defending the nation, post-independence. The design of the National War Memorial has a layout comprising four concentric circles, namely, the ‘Amar Chakra’ or Circle of Immortality, the ‘Veerta Chakra’ or Circle of Bravery, the ‘Tyag Chakra’ or Circle of Sacrifice, and the ‘Rakshak Chakra’ or Circle of Protection. Busts of the 21 awardees of Param Veer Chakra have been installed at the memorial.
