Shahid Minar, Dhaka City

(3.7/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Appreciate the importance of Shahid Minar, a monument where history, architecture, and art meet to honor the martyrs who fought for the recognition of their native language. In 1952, during the Bengali language movement demonstrations, the police force opened fire on protestors who were fighting for the official status of the Bengali language in Bangladesh. Existing monuments dedicated to the martyrs were demolished, with the monument you see today being rebuilt after the Bangladesh Liberation War. The monument, made of marble and colored in red and white, features Bengali poetry written in iron letters.
