Barki Memorial was built in 1969 in the honour of the soldiers of the 7 Infantry Division, who sacrificed their lives during the battle of 1965. The foundation stone of the memorial was laid down by Lt. Gen. Harbakhsh Singh VC on 11th September 1969, and the inauguration was done by Lt. Gen. HK Sibal MVC.
