National Martyrs' Memorial - The National Monument of Bangladesh

The National Martyrs' Memorial is the national monument of Bangladesh. Located in Savar, near the capital city Dhaka, it is one of the nations most iconic structures. The monument represents the sacrifice made by those who laid down their lives to liberate the country in the Liberation War of Bangladesh in 1971. The National Martyrs' Memorial is one of the most beautiful structures in the country. It is a fascinating structure as it changes its form when viewed from different angles.

Designed by renowned architect Moinul Hossain, the monument is composed of seven triangular planes. Each of the panes are of varying in size, with the middle one being the tallest. It is a triangular pyramid shaped structure and the highest point of the monument is 150 feet. The project of the National Martyrs’ Memorial was completed in three phases. The initial construction work began in July, 1972 and the construction completed in June, 1988.

The National Martyrs Memorial park is a great attractive destination for tourism. After the National Parliament building of Bangladesh, the National Martyrs Memorial is most safe and clean tourist location around Dhaka. It is a wonderful location far from hustle and bustle, where you can breath a bit fresh air compared to Dhaka city. Pleasantly laid out, with a beautiful water feature, gardens and trees, the monument is a nice thing to see. It looks nice at evening time but its full of people.
