Introduction

The National War Memorial was inaugurated and dedicated to the nation by the Hon’ble Prime Minister on 25 Feb 2019. The memorial complex is in harmony with the existing layout and symmetry of the majestic Rajpath and Central Vista. Solemnity of the ambience is maintained with an emphasis on landscaping and simplicity of architecture. Apart from the main memorial, there is dedicated area for busts of 21 soldiers who have been conferred with 'Param Vir Chakra’, the nation's highest gallantry award in war. The design of the main memorial exemplifies that supreme sacrifice made by a soldier in the line of duty not only makes him immortal, but also depicts that the spirit of a soldier remains eternal.

Veerta Chakra (Circle of Bravery). This circle depicts the Bravery of Indian forces in the form of a covered gallery that exhibits six bronze murals, depicting valiant battle actions of Indian Armed Forces.
Amar Chakra ( Circle of Immortality). This has an Obelisk with Eternal Flame. The flame symbolises the immortality of the spirit of fallen soldiers with the assurance that the Nation will never forget their sacrifices.
Tyag Chakra (Circle of Sacrifice). This includes circular concentric walls of honour, which symbolise the ancient war formation 'Chakravyuh'. The walls are clad with granite tablets where an independent granite tablet is dedicated to each soldier who has made the supreme sacrifice. Each name on the tablet is etched in golden letters.
Raksha Chakra (Circle of Protection). The outermost circle made of rows of trees in the Raksha Chakra is a reassurance to the citizens of the country about their safety against any threat, with each tree representing the soldiers who ensure the territorial integrity of the Nation, round the clock.
