It would not be an exaggeration if we compare Kashmir to the heavenly abode of Gods. With the most mesmerizing view of landscapes, beautiful vistas and monasteries, a place which has been described as the most serene by a lot of poets and authors; also has a lot of blemishes which is beyond concealing.

One of the most magical beauty which attracts a lot of travellers towards her also has a tale of tragedy that unfolds as you visit the Kargil War Memorial. Along with the melody of the cold breeze from the Himalayas, we also get to listen to the heartbeats of our unsung heroes, the brave-hearts, the ones who were born to keep the country and the countrymen safe.

Kargil War Memorial has become one of the major tourist attractions in Leh, it showcases the courage of our Indian army officers who were killed during the Kargil War of 1999. As you enter this place, a huge sandstone that stands in pride with the names of officers who sacrificed their lives for the nation and a 15kg Indian Flag that was hoisted to celebrate the victory of the war welcomes everyone with pride.

The Kargil War Memorial is located at the foothills of Tololing hill, on the Srinagar-Leh highway. This gallery is a tribute to the captain Manoj Kumar Pandey, who was the proud recipient of the Param Vir Chakra.

It's time that we take a visual tour of this place and pay a tribute to our UNSUNG heroes and celebrate the Kargil Vijay Diwas.
